September 3 (Renewables Now) - Dutch engineering consultancy Pondera and Korean engineering firm Hanmi Global will take the owner’s engineer role for South Korea’s third offshore wind project -- the Jeju Hanlim of 100 MW.
The two companies will complement each other as Hanmi Global has a history in project realisation and construction management, but has limited knowledge of offshore wind, while Pondera is experienced in that particular field.
The Jeju Hanlim offshore wind project has been in development since 2011 by a consortium led by KEPCO E&C, with participation from KOMIPO, DAELIM and BARAM. The wind park is planned to be built at a site off the coast of Jeju Island.
South Korea is looking to reach a 20% renewables share in 2030 and has a plan to add about 13 GW of offshore wind by then, Pondera said in a statement.
