Offshore wind in South Korea
South Korea has large potential within offshore wind and offers attractive opportunities, transforming its energy mix from nuclear power and coal to renewable energy.
The share of renewable energy in South Korea’s power production is predicted to increase to 20% by 2030; aiming to add 49GW to its renewable production capacity by 2030, of which solar power accounts for 31GW and wind power 16GW.
Equinor has started conducting wind measurements needed to further investigate the possibility of developing and constructing a floating offshore wind project off the coast of Ulsan in South Korea.
