Siemens Gamesa, a Spanish energy company, and Doosan Group subsidiary Doosan Enerbility have agreed to explore potential offshore wind power cooperation in South Korea. In Copenhagen, Denmark, the two companies signed a non-binding MoU to assess the scope of collaboration on large-scale offshore wind turbines, including installation, maintenance, and supply of turbine parts. They will also explore the sharing of services for the construction of production facilities in South Korea.
Furthermore, the partnership will investigate potential employment creation and industrialisation in the country’s offshore wind segment. The proposed collaboration between the companies is expected to use Doosan Enerbility’s domestic production base, business capabilities, and experience, as well as Siemens Gamesa’s knowledge of the global offshore wind space.
Recently, Siemens Gamesa was awarded a contract to supply 60 wind turbine units for the 882 MW Moray West offshore wind power project in Scotland. According to the agreement, the company would deliver its SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines, each having a capacity of 14.7 MW. Each SG 14-222 DD turbine would have a 222 metre rotor diameter and use Siemens Gamesa’s 108 metre-long IntegralBlades. The Moray West project, located in Scotland’s Moray Firth inlet, is set to generate its first power in 2024.
