South Korea’s First Commercial Offshore Wind Farm Goes Live

South Korean Tamra offshore wind farm was officially opened today (17 November) at a ceremony attended by South Korea’s Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy, Paik Ungyu, and the officials from Korea South-East Power, the wind farm’s developer.

The country’s first commercial offshore wind farm comprises ten 3MW Doosan wind turbines installed about 0.5 – 1 km offshore Geumdeung-ri on Jeju Island.

Tamra produced its first power in late September of 2016, and the entire wind farm has now been put into full operation following two months of testing.

The power produced by Tamra can cover the electricity needs of some seven thousand Korean households.
