With substantial climatological and topographical constraints limiting options for the development of onshore wind and solar in South Korea, offshore wind presents a clear route for the country to reduce its dependency on imported fossil fuels. As such, the progression of offshore wind projects is key to seeing the country meet its decarbonisation targets as outlined by President Moon Jae-in’s Renewable Energy 2030 Implementation Plan.

Following the successful delivery of a preliminary feasibility study and site screening in the initial stages of the development, K2M, in partnership with Dohwa Engineering (Dohwa), will now deliver on the next stage of the project. This will include design of the turbine foundations, inter-array, export cables, and offshore substation. K2M and Dohwa will also carry out the energy yield assessment and manage the invitation to tender and permitting processes, with the goal of streamlining the project and ensuring it remains on schedule.

“Offshore wind represents a significant opportunity for South Korea to meet its clean energy targets and provide sustainable, green jobs for local people” said Sung-Won Jung, Country Director at K2 Management Korea. “We are proud to have been selected as owner’s engineer for this project and are looking forward to supporting the project’s realisation.”

Chan Seong Park, General Director, Sung-Wook Park, Managing Director and Gyu Young Kang, Project Manager in Dohwa, added that K2 Management supported comprehensive technical aspects during the preliminary feasibility study phase and that the collaboration of technical expertise between K2 Management and Dohwa has been central to the successful progression of Taean Offshore Wind Farm to date.

Construction of Taean Offshore Wind Farm is scheduled to begin in July 2023, with a completion date of 2026.
