LOC Group has been retained by Korea Offshore Wind Power (KOWP) and Swiss Re to carry out marine warranty surveying (MWS) services on the 60MW test phase of Korea’s Southwest Offshore Windfarm Project. LOC’s contract for services will run from the second quarter of 2017 until early 2019.

The project, which will include twenty 3MW wind turbines from Korean manufacturer Doosan, and an offshore high voltage substation, is being built by KOWP, a subsidiary of Korean utility KEPCO. Furthermore, the scheme will provide an R&D opportunity for the construction team, with the installation of two different foundation types for comparison. A combination of suction bucket type foundations (developed by KEPRI) and a Warren Truss type four leg jacket (developed by POSCO, a multinational steel-marker headquartered in Pohang) will be used on the site.
