Pattern Energy does not fear being crowded out of the emerging Japanese offshore wind market following the recent deal between the country's largest power company and global offshore wind leader Orsted, says Pattern chief executive Mike Garland.

Amid growing interest in Japan’s offshore market, Denmark’s Orsted last month announced a memorandum of understanding with the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to develop offshore wind capacity in Japan, starting with the Choshi project near Tokyo.
