ESVAGT and KMC Line have signed a letter of intent to cooperate in unlocking the potential for renewable energy production in South Korea.

“We have no doubt that ESVAGT and KMC Line present a compelling offering. By combining KMC Line, a reputable shipping company with a strong presence in Korea, and ESVAGT’s expertise in Europe as a leading SOV operator, we can offer the growing Korean offshore wind industry a first-class service,” said Peter Lytzen, CEO of ESVAGT.

James Jonghoon Kim, CEO of KMC Line, said that combining the two shipping companies’ respective strengths is the new partnership’s strongest card to secure a significant market position in the developing offshore value chain in Korea.

KMC Line currently has twelve vessels in its fleet, including heavy and project cargo carriers, ro-ros, and bulkers.
