The 200 MW project is called Donghae 1 and will be located close to the KNOC-operated Donghae natural gas field off the coast of Ulsan in South Korea.

The consortium will start by carryng out a feasibility study, including use of the Donghae 1 platform as a substation for a possible wind farm. Constructing may start as early as 2022, with possible power production start-up in 2024.

“We are very pleased to be member of the partnership involved in realising the first floating offshore wind farm in Asia,” says Stephen Bull, senior vice president for the wind and low carbon cluster of New Energy Solutions in Equinor. “If we succeed in realising the project, the Donghae floating offshore wind project will be the world’s biggest floating wind farm, more than twice the size of Hywind Tampen on the Norwegian continental shelf. A floating offshore wind farm of this size will help further increase the competitiveness of floating offshore wind power in the future,” says Bull.
