KEPCO Engineering & Construction, Korea, has appointed K2 Management to help it deliver the first floating offshore wind farm in Korea for developer Ulsan Consortium.
The project, in the pre-feasibility phase supported by government, is expected to be approximately 200 MW as a testbed, around 50km from the coast of Ulsan Metropolitan city in the East Sea.
The Mayor of Ulsan Metropolitan city is willing to expand it further in the commercialization phase.
K2 Management’s mandate includes developing a high-level strategy for operation and maintenance (O&M) of the floating project, including CAPEX and OPEX estimation, consideration of O&M procedure, commercialization and expansion concepts and the design and technical requirements for wind turbine generator (WTG) technology and floating foundation types.
KEPCO E&C also appointed K2 Management in 2017 to support another ongoing offshore project, delivering owner’s engineering services including energy yield analysis, WTG procurement support and technical support.
