Aker Solutions, Principle Power score work on Korean 1GW floating wind project

Principle Power

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract to Aker Solutions and Principle Power for the floating foundations for the Haewoori 2 and 3 offshore wind projects off South Korea .

As part of the scope, Aker Solutions will coordinate the design and delivery of the floating foundation structures required for the Haewoori offshore wind project and perform the FEED of the inter-array cable, marshalling port, wind turbine integration, and transport and installation. Work on the FEED will start immediately and is due to be completed by November 2024.

Principle Power will work under subcontract to perform the design of the floating platforms and mooring system. Aker Solutions will also carry out execution planning, and work with Haewoori Offshore Wind to engage with the Korean supply chain to maximise local engagement in the projects.

The project is a 1.5GW floating offshore wind project located off the coast of Ulsan, South Korea. Haewoori Offshore Wind is being developed by CIP in collaboration with its development and technical partners including Copenhagen Offshore Partners and other network companies. Each of the three Haewoori floating wind projects has a capacity of 500MW each.

“Contributing to a project of this size and scale is a great opportunity to demonstrate our offshore expertise to accelerate the development of much-needed projects across the globe,” said Henrik Inadomi, executive vice president of New Energies at Aker Solutions.
