Marubeni Corporation Opens Glasgow Office
22nd Nov 2022
Global corporation, Marubeni Europower Limited, has advanced its net zero collaboration in Scotland following the opening of its first office in Glasgow.
The investment in new premises will allow the company to drive forward its work to support Scotland’s journey to net zero and follows a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which it signed in Glasgow last year during COP26.
Part of the consortium for ScotWind’s floating offshore wind project, the Marubeni team is working with leading renewable energy developer, SSE Renewables and Danish fund management company, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, to develop what will become one of the world’s largest floating offshore wind farms off the east coast of Scotland.
The company is also at the heart of an ambitious hydrogen project in Glasgow city that aims to establish a Green Energy Hub which will supply green hydrogen to local users including Scottish Event Campus to hold net zero events.
Tomoki Nishino, President & CEO of Marubeni Europower Limited said:
“We are delighted to have opened our office in Glasgow. Especially as a developer of the Scottish offshore wind project Ossian and green hydrogen project in Glasgow, it is extremely important for us to reach out to the stakeholders and citizens of Scotland and listen to their voices. Our members in Glasgow are proudly committed to contribute to achieving Scotland’s net zero ambitions by delivering these significant low carbon projects, together with our friends in Scotland.”
