Technip Energies, Subsea 7 and Samkang M&T to Perform FEED for Gray Whale 3 Floating Offshore Wind Project in South Korea
PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Technip Energies (Paris:TE) (ISIN:NL0014559478), in consortium with Subsea 7 and Samkang M&T has been selected by Corio Generation and TotalEnergies to perform a Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for their Ulsan Gray Whale 3 Offshore Windfarm project, located offshore the East Coast of South Korea.
The FEED contract covers engineering for floater, mooring, and inter-array cable (IAC) in collaboration with a wind turbine supplier.
The design of the floating foundation will include Technip Energies’ in-house floater technology INO15™. With a capacity of 15 megawatts, INO15™ technology is a three columns semi-submersible floater which is well suited for large series production.
The Gray Whale 3, aiming to develop a 504MW floating offshore wind farm located around 60 to 70 kilometers from Onsan Port in Ulsan, is one of the three offshore wind projects with a total installed capacity of 1.5 gigawatts that Corio Generation and TotalEnergies are promoting off the coast of Ulsan.
Laure Mandrou, SVP Carbon Free Solutions at Technip Energies, commented: “We are glad to have been selected, together with Subsea 7 and Samkang, to perform the FEED of this important offshore wind project. While leveraging our in-house floater technology INO15TM and the complementarity of strong industrial players, we are excited to contribute to build the future of the floating offshore wind in South Korea fostering the global energy transition.”
Philippe Gleize, VP Floating Wind, at Subsea 7 said: “The Gray Whale 3 Offshore Windfarm project represents an exciting opportunity for Subsea 7 and furthers our involvement in the floating wind market in South Korea. We are very pleased to have been selected as a consortium partner and are looking forward to working collaboratively with our clients and all parties involved in maximising the wealth of knowledge, capability and expertise we collectively bring to deliver this FEED project.”
Song Moo-suk, chairman of SAMKANG M&T, commented; “The floating offshore wind project is a breakthrough alternative to solving the limitations of fixed projects and requires cutting-edge technology and construction capabilities. Based on the know-how accumulated through successful offshore wind substructure projects such as Taiwan and the UK, we will secure a firm position as a global leader.”
