Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction and SK E&C forge floating alliance

Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction and SK Engineering & Construction (SK E&C) have signed a technical cooperation agreement for floating offshore wind farm projects. Attending the signing ceremony held at SK E&C’s head office on 18th November were Jaehyun Ahn, CEO of SK E&C, and Inwon Park, CEO of Doosan Heavy’s Plant EPC Business Group.

The two companies agreed to implement a cooperation system for the floating offshore wind farm business carried out by SK E&C. Under the agreement, SK E&C will take on the development of the wind farm complex, including development of the business plan and obtainment of the licenses and permits, while Doosan will assume responsibility for the technology development to manufacture key equipment for floating offshore wind farms.

"Given the rising interest in floating offshore wind farms, the signing of this agreement will open up more business opportunities for us in the market. We will endeavor to successfully pursue the floating offshore wind power business, including projects in the Ulsan and Southeast region of Korea, where we expect to see phased growth starting in 2023,"
said Inwon Park, CEO of Doosan Heavy’s Plant EPC BG.

Since May, Doosan has been participating in the national project, led by the Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning (KETEP), for the development of a floating offshore wind power generation system as part of the consortium formed with Korea South-East Power Co. (KOEN) and Jeju Energy Corporation (JEC).
