KOEN Picks Vestas 15 MW Turbines for Wando Geumil Offshore Wind Farm

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 the V236-15.0 MW turbine. Vestas will also deliver 20 years of operation and maintenance service for the wind farm when operational.

”We are honoured to have been selected as preferred turbine supplier by KOEN for the Wando Geumil offshore wind project and the trust that the customer placed in Vestas,” said Purvin Patel, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.

”Aiming to become a leader in offshore wind, Vestas is committed to support decarbonisation of the country as well as the Asia Pacific region, in close partnership with our customers.”

The delivery of the turbines is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2025, with commercial operation scheduled for the third quarter of 2026.

”We are so excited to take part in this project, which 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 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2030,” said Srdan Cenic, Country Manager of Vestas Korea & Vice President, Head of Sales Offshore of Vestas Asia Pacific.

Earlier this year, Vestas announced plans to build out a wind energy supply chain in South Korea, dependent on a growing market for offshore wind in the country.
