Vestas has signed a preferred supplier agreement with Hanwha for the 390 MW Shinan Ui offshore wind project in Shinan County, South Korea.
The project is being developed by Shinan Ui Offshore Wind, a special purpose company established by Hanwha. Completed project plans include featuring 26 units of V236-15.0 MW turbines, to be installed on fixed foundations in the southeastern waters of Ui Island. Vestas will also deliver 20 years of operation and maintenance service for the wind farm once operational.
“We are honored that our Korean partners, Hanwha Corporation E&C Division, have placed their trust in us and selected us as preferred turbine supplier for the project,” says Purvin Patel, Vestas Asia Pacific president. “We are very much looking forward to working with the customers and providing our V236-15.0 MW offshore turbines for the project.”
Vestas has won more than 2.8 GW of firm orders for the V236-15.0 MW for which it secured type certificate in November, and will begin serial production next year.
