ODE Secures Another Offshore Wind Contract in South Korea
UK-based Offshore Design Engineering Limited (ODE) has been selected as the Owner’s Engineer for Vena Energy’s 384 MW Yokji offshore wind farm in South Korea.
Under the two-year contract, ODE will provide a range of services including basic engineering, wind turbine generators (WTG) package support as well as EPC preparation support.
According to the company, the aim is for the project to achieve commercial operation by 2026, ahead of the Korean Government’s goal to establish an offshore wind capacity of 12 GW by 2030.
ODE will coordinate activities on this project between its Seoul and London offices.
The company is now supporting over 1 GW of offshore wind projects in Korea as the Owner’s Engineer.
In March, ODE and Hanmi Global were awarded a contract for a 400 MW offshore wind farm in South Korea by an unnamed client.
Last year, the company won two Owner’s Engineer contracts for offshore wind farms in South Korea.
The first contract ODE signed with the Green Investment Group (GIG) in July 2021 for its offshore wind farms in South Korea.
That same year, ODE secured another Owner’s Engineer contract with Hyundai Engineering Corporation for a 220 MW offshore wind project in the country.
South Korea does not have any commercial-scale offshore wind farms in operation and, aside from the 60 MW Seonam demonstrator, the country is home to the Tamra offshore wind farm which has a capacity of 30 MW.
