Solar Sailor Holdings Ltd. has announced that it has established a representative office in Fukuoka, Japan, as part of the company's expansion into markets across Asia.

Solar Sailor is an Australian public unlisted company founded in 1999 with 150 shareholders and the Honourable Bob Hawke (former Australian Prime Minister) as Chairman.

The company owns patented 'solarsail' technology - single devices that can harvest wind and solar energy on any vehicle and has developed hybrid marine power (HMP) technology for a variety of applications from small unmanned vessels, to ferries, cruisers and tankers.

Robert Dane, CEO of Solar Sailor Holdings Ltd., said that he was proud to open an office in Fukuoka and felt the timing was right for Solar Sailor to come to Japan as the nation displays leadership in green initiatives and developing technologies.

He also added; “As we come out of the global financial crisis energy efficiency and renewable energy development that lessen fossil fuel use and reduce environmental impact are going to be the next boom”.

The office in Japan will undertake market research activities, business partner searches and help promote Solar Sailor's solutions throughout the region. Solar Sailor will also be seeking strategic partners in Japan to help develop its solar & wind power technologies for use across the marine industry.

The address of the Fukuoka Office is:

Solarsailor Holdings Ltd.
5F Aqua Hakata.
5-3-8 Nakasu. Fukuoka. 810-0801.
Japan.
