- Maintenance to be provided on 20 wind turbines with a total capacity of 60MW
- Aim to enhance competitiveness to lead domestic wind power market, which is forecasted to grow to 16GW by 2030

  • □ Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) announced on August 00 that it had signed a maintenance service contract with Korea Offshore Wind Power (KOWP) for the Southwest Demonstration Wind Farm. The contract will be for 15 years, and DHIC will be responsible for guaranteeing the operation rate of wind turbines, as well as providing routine maintenance and offshore maintenance services starting in 2019.

  • □ As Korea’s largest offshore wind farm development project, the Southwest Offshore Wind Power Project will be carried out in three phases along the southeast coast of Wido in Buan-gun, North Jeolla Province. This maintenance contract covers Phase 1 of the project, which involves building 20 wind turbines for a total capacity of 60MW, and the construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.

  • □ DHIC formed a consortium with Hyundai Construction & Engineering and won the equipment supply contract for this wind farm back in September 2015. DHIC has been supplying 3MW wind turbines developed in-house to the Southwest Offshore Demonstration Wind Farm.

  • □ “DHIC has proven its commercial competitiveness once again by winning the contract to supply equipment and maintenance services to Southwest Offshore Wind Power, the second and largest offshore wind farm in Korea, following after our Tamla Offshore Wind Power project win, which was Korea’s first offshore wind farm. We intend to continue expanding the wind power business in the domestic market, which is forecasted to grow to a scale of 16GW by 2030, and will endeavor to build up our export capabilities,” said Jinwon Mok, Power Service BG CEO at DHIC.

  • □ In July, DHIC was selected as the main contractor for the “Development of a 8MW Large-Capacity Offshore Wind Power Generation System,” a state project being pursued by the Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning, to direct the engineering, manufacturing, and demonstration of the model. The company has been expanding its presence in the global wind power market in various ways, such as signing an MOU with Electricity of Vietnam, the Vietnamese electric power authority, in March for the development of a 3MW offshore demonstration wind farm that is linked with an energy storage system (ESS).
