South Korea has plans to develop 12GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030. To support this growing demand, Equinor is planning to develop the floating offshore wind project Firefly. Over the next year, a feasibility study into the viability of wind resource will be conducted.
RPS was engaged to deliver two Floating LiDAR buoys to collect the data that will determine future investment decisions. The buoys will be moored some 80 km offshore of Ulsan for the next year, collecting wind and wave data to determine the resource viability. Data will be transmitted every 10 minutes via satellite communications. The RPS Floating LiDAR 4.5 buoy design is environmentally friendly and Level 2 Certified qualifying them to collect bankable wind resource data for clients.
