DORIS Inks Another FEED Contract in South Korea

DORIS, a provider of engineering, advisory, and project management services for the energy sector, has secured another Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contract for BadaEnergy’s Gray Whale 3 floating offshore wind farm in South Korea.


The scope of the FEED includes the project’s full electrical and communications system to the grid connection, array and export cabling, and all aspects of the fixed offshore substation foundation and topsides structures.

The contract follows the award last year to the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI)/DORIS consortium for the floating foundation FEED.

DORIS said that it will leverage its track record in Korea, which currently exceeds 3 GW, to deliver the contract by combining its local resources, the expertise of its Korean partners, and its international engineering centres.

Gray Whale 3 is being developed by BadaEnergy, a joint venture between Corio Generation, TotalEnergies, and SK Ecoplant.

The 504 MW floating project is planned to be constructed around 60 to 70 kilometres from Onsan Port.


Gray Whale 3 is part of a three-phase development expected to reach a total capacity of 1.5 GW. In 2021, the developers received an electric business license (EBL) from the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy’s Electricity Regulatory Commission for the project’s first phase of 504 MW.

According to the companies, this was the first floating offshore wind project in Korea to be awarded an EBL.
