GL Garrad Hassan Representative Covers South Korea

South Korea is expanding its activities in the renewable energy business. Inter alia, the government plans to install 500 wind turbines with a capacity of 2,500 MW off the country’s west coast.

As a consequence, GL Garrad Hassan has now a representative on-site in Seoul, South Korea to provide locally services and support for designer, manufacturers and developers of renewable energy projects. Mr Jone Jung Bae Oh will be the new Business Development Manager for South Korea. He has a PH. D. in Mechanical Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University, USA and comprehensive experience in the wind energy industry.

GL Garrad Hassan Regional Manager Asia and Vice President Mathias Steck: “Mr Jone Oh’s experience in the industry and his deep insight into the South Korean renewables market will further develop GL Garrad Hassan’s renewables business and identify new business opportunities. We are now much closer to our Korean clients and can offer the service without any restrictions. Having a local expert on the ground will allow us to broaden our offering to the industry there.”

GL’s Renewables business segment is already present and working in the South Korean market, delivering wind turbine design, measurements, certification and project consultancy.
