South Korea – Floating Wind Association
Five wind energy companies have joined the region’s chamber of commerce and industry in promoting the interests of South Korea’s renewables sector.
The Ulsan Floating Offshore Wind Association has officially been launched with the aim of promoting the development of the offshore wind industry in the South Korean region.
The association is made up of the Ulsan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (UCCI), along with Korea Floating Wind, Firefly Offshore Wind Farm, Haewoori Offshore Wind, Gray Whale Offshore Wind Power and Munmubaram.
Representatives of the respective companies attended the ceremony to highlight the importance of collaboration and discuss ideas relating to the development of the offshore wind industry in Ulsan.
UCCI chairman Lee Yuncheol said in a press release: “The launch of the Ulsan Floating Offshore Wind Association marks the first meaningful step in building an offshore wind power ecosystem in the region and going carbon-free. Going forward, the UCCI will work closely with the association as well as relevant authorities at the central and local levels in order to successfully establish Korea’s first floating offshore wind farm.”
The association plans to actively collaborate with all stakeholders related to offshore wind power projects and provide relevant authorities with advice for the development of the offshore wind power and renewable energy industries.
