FEED and Detailed Design Contract Signing Ceremony

Haewoori Offshore Wind 2 (500MW) and 3 (500MW), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partner’s floating offshore wind projects off the coast of Ulsan, Korea have awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract to Aker Solutions and Principle Power for the floating foundations.

As part of the scope, Aker Solutions will coordinate the design and delivery of the floating foundation structures required for the Haewoori Offshore Wind project and perform the front-end engineering design of the inter-array cable, marshaling port, wind turbine integration, and transport and installation.

Principle Power will perform the design of the floating platforms and mooring system based on its proven and bankable WindFloat® technology. Aker Solutions will also carry out execution planning, and work with Haewoori Offshore Wind to engage with the Korean supply chain to maximise local engagement in the projects.

After a robust selection process, we are happy to collaborate with Aker Solutions and Principle Power for the FEED for the delivery of floating structures. The combined technical expertise and know-how of Aker Solutions and Principle Power will provide us with the capabilities to deliver one of the first industrial scale floating wind projects in the world.

Together, we will continue to engage the Korean supply chain to bring the knowledge from real deployment experience, thereby helping Korea to accelerate its floating offshore wind industry, while reducing cost and risk for these first projects.
