Offshore wind consultancy firm OWC (Offshore Wind Consultants) has decided to set up an office in South Korea in order to support the country’s offshore wind plans. Industry senior NJ Park has been appointed OWC’s country manager.
 
“We continue our expansion into key emerging markets such as South Korea. We believe a local presence is central to leveraging our global expertise and providing the best possible local support to wind farm developers,” says Will Cleverly, managing director of OWC, an independent technical advisor, engineering and project management consultancy to the offshore renewables sector.
  
“Offshore wind is not a major energy source in South Korea today, but we see huge opportunities within both fixed and floating offshore wind installations. Our presence here reflects our ambitions to support the country’s green energy drive,” adds Cleverly.

OWC has appointed highly experienced Noh Joon “NJ” Park to head up its operation in South Korea, based out of Seoul.
 
Park joins OWC from sister company AqualisBraemar’s Singapore office, where he has held a project director role for the past six years. Park has more than 28 years’ experience in offshore wind and oil and gas industries, with a background in structural engineering for offshore structures including all relevant yard activities such as fabrication, loadout and installation.
 
Prior to AqualisBraemar, Park spent four years as project manager at DNV GL and almost 20 years with Hyundai Heavy Industries, including the role as general manager for the construction giant’s structure and T&I department.
 
“When people take a look at NJ’s CV, most instantly say ‘wow’. He has been involved in such an amazing number of offshore projects all over the world and will be a fantastic asset for our clients in South Korea,” says Will Cleverly.
