Yooshin, Pondera Performing Consultancy Work for Korean 600 MW Offshore Wind Project

Wando Geumil Offshore Wind, the company developing the 600 MW Wando Geumil offshore wind farm in South Korea, whose majority shareholder is KOEN (Korea South-East Power Company), has awarded a contract for operations & maintenance (O&M) strategy consultancy services to Yooshin Engineering Corporation.

Yooshin has subcontracted Pondera Consult to support the work that aims to determine an O&M strategy for all facilities related to the wind farm.

The consultancy project, which started at the end of last year, includes the classification and definition of O&M services, required technology and equipment, technical manpower planning, benchmarking and handover strategies when going from the EPC to the O&M phase.

The Netherlands-based Pondera has teamed up with DWT and OutSmart to carry out the work. For the local vessel acquisition strategy, the renewable offshore brokers from GRS will support Pondera and DWT with a market screening. Pondera, DWT and OutSmart will also dive into training programs for securing technical manpower, the consultancy said.

The Wando Geumil offshore wind project is proposed to be built in Wando-Gun, South Jeolla Province, South Korea.

The 600 MW offshore wind farm is planned to comprise 40 V236-15.0 MW wind turbines for which the developer signed a preferred supplier agreement with Vestas last year.
