BadaEnergy, a portfolio of offshore wind projects in South Korea jointly developed by Corio Generation, TotalEnergies and SK ecoplant, has selected Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) as the preferred bidder for the EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) of its Gray Whale 3 floating offshore wind farm.
In August last year, BadaEnergy selected the HHI and Doris Engineering consortium as Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contractor for Gray Whale 3 to perform FEED (Front-End Engineering and Design) services for floater, mooring and inter-array cables.
HHI is now collaborating in a task force with the BadaEnergy team and Vestas (selected as preferred wind turbine supplier for Gray Whale 3) with the aim of continuing to optimise the design and industrialise the execution plan for the fabrication of the 33 hulls, the integration of the turbines, and the installation on site.
The Ulsan floating offshore wind projects (project name: Gray Whale 1,2,3) aim to construct 1.5GW in public waters about 60 kilometres east of Ulsan Port, targeting to start phased construction in 2025 and begin the first commercial operation in 2028.
