Wind Energy – South Korea
Siemens Gamesa and South Korea’s Doosan Enerbility recently signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to investigate strategic cooperation within offshore wind power activities.
The MoU, signed in Copenhagen, Denmark, covers investigations of potential collaboration between the two companies on several Korea-focused fronts.
They are related to collaboration on large-scale offshore wind turbines, sharing of major services including construction of new Korean production facilities, the supply of wind turbine parts, offshore wind turbine installation, and turbine maintenance, among others.
In the strategic MoU, Doosan Enerbility is intended to contribute its experienced track record, domestic production base, and business capabilities, complementing Siemens Gamesa’s global know-how in offshore wind. The MoU will investigate potential products and services optimized for the domestic Korean offshore wind market. It will also explore a Korean domestic supply chain and related industries.
Furthermore, it will study potential job creation and industrialization in the Korean offshore wind power market.
Since the start of the wind power business in 2005, Doosan Enerbility is the only manufacturer in Korea that has a supply record in the domestic offshore wind power market, including Tamra Offshore Wind Power (30MW) and Southwest Offshore Wind Power Phase 1 (60MW).
