Tender opens for LiDAR off South Korea

In South Korea, Jeonnam Development Corporation has just opened a tender for the manufacture and installation of a LiDAR system in 30-35m deep waters west of Sinan.
The system should be installed within six months of the contract being issued and should measure wind speed, direction, and density for 24 months. This will inform the feasibility study for offshore wind candidate areas. The contract value, including VAT is KRW 2,957,000,000 and the deadline for bids is 12th June 2020.

Back in March, Jeonnam Development Corporation commissioned geotechnical surveys for two areas (Sinan and Yeonggwang), one of which will be developed. The contract was won by Dongshin ENG Co., Ltd., beating 99 other candidates, with surveys carried out in March and April.

South Korea is targeting 12 GW of offshore wind by 2030. 4C Offshore’s Project Opportunity Pipeline includes around 7 GW of projects due to enter construction before the end of the decade, but there is mounting interest in floating wind off the south coast where wind resources are stronger.
