COWI Lands South Korea Offshore Wind Contract
COWI has been awarded Detailed Design work for Anma Offshore Wind at South Korea's utility-scale offshore wind farm. The win follows years of collaboration as owner's engineer delivering the Front End Engineering Design for the project.
The project, situated on the West coast of South Korea, in Yeonggwang-gun, Jeollanam-do, is expected to provide electricity to more than 1.4 million South Koreans each year.
This project will significantly contribute to South Korea's ambitious sustainability goals of converting 20 percent of the country's electricity generation to renewable sources by 2030. It will also play a vital role in boosting the local economy, supporting fisheries, and providing employment opportunities.
"We have supported Anma in this important undertaking since the very beginning. Its lean and performance-driven team, with support from the right partners, will make it possible to establish one of the first offshore wind farms in South Korea. It has been a privilege to be a part of this throughout all project phases, and we are excited to move on to the detailed design phase together," says Sebastian Flores, Vice President of Markets, Offshore Wind.
We look forward to continuing to support Anma in accelerating the green transition in South Korea.
Ryan Colbeck, EPC Director for Anma Offshore Wind said: “Having entrusted COWI with the successful FEED Design for our WTG Foundations, it’s great to be able to continue the journey together and see the Foundation Design through to completion. We are confident that together, we can set the standard to which all future offshore wind projects in South Korea will aim for, and that we will continue leading the charge to drive the country’s Net Zero ambitions.”
