OWC has decided to set up an office in South Korea in order to support the country’s offshore wind plans. The South Korean government has announced that it aims to reach 30-35% renewables in its energy mix by 2040.
This translates to installing almost 130GW of renewable energy by 2040, compared to current capacity of around 11.3GW.
OWC has appointed 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. Prior to AqualisBraemar, Park spent four years as project manager at DNV GL and almost 20 years with Hyundai Heavy Industries.
