Equinor in South Korea
South Korea is transforming its energy mix from nuclear power and coal to renewable energy. The share of renewable energy in its power production is estimated to increase to 20% by 2030; aiming to add 49GW to its renewable production capacity by 2030, of which solar power accounts for 36,5GW and wind power 17,7GW.
Equinor opened our country office in South Korea in 2014, and since then we have carried out the construction of the topsides for the Mariner and Aasta Hansteen platforms, the Aasta Hansteen hull, two Category-J rigs, and two platforms for Johan Sverdrup in South Korea.
As a broad energy company developing oil, gas, wind and solar, we see a broad potential for developing offshore wind off the Korean coastline. In addition to developing the Firefly Wind Farm, we are aiming to develop a 200 MW floating offshore wind farm off the coast of Ulsan together with our partners Korean National Oil Company and East West Power.
