Vestas has signed a preferred supplier agreement with Korea South-East Power Company (KOEN) for the 600 MW Wando Geumil offshore wind project in Wando-Gun, South Jeolla Province, South Korea.
If the project materialises, Vestas will supply and install 40 units of its V236-15.0 MW turbine. Vestas will also deliver 20 years of operation and maintenance service for the wind farm when operational.
“This project … will be the first collaboration for us with KOEN. Through the project, KOEN and Vestas will work together to unleash the potential of offshore wind in the west coast of the country and contribute to South Korea’s goal of generating 20 % of its energy from renewable sources by 2030,” says Srdan Cenic, country manager of Vestas Korea & VP, head of Sales Offshore of Vestas Asia Pacific.
Delivery of the turbines is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2025, with commercial operation scheduled for the third quarter of 2026.
