Hyundai Heavy Industries Co, Ltd. (HHI), the world’s biggest shipbuilder and a wind turbine supplier announced that it won an order to supply 20 sets of 2 MW wind turbines from DaeMyoung GEC Co., Ltd. for the Yeongam Wind Farm in Jeollanam-do Province, South Korea. The work scope includes installation supervision and commissioning. A long-term maintenance service agreement is also in discussion for signature soon.
The HHI 2 MW turbines are scheduled for delivery in July this year. The company says the units feature reliable performance and deliver a low cost of energy in low winds.
Upon completion in this November, the 40 MW Yeongam Wind Farm, which is Korea’s largest onshore project built with wind turbines supplied by a Korean company, will annually generate enough electricity for about 30,000 households.
HHI has a total annual wind production capacity of 600 MW. The company, South Korea’s biggest wind-turbine supplier, has also installed 24 MW in the Taebaek and Changjuk Wind Farms in Gangwon Province, Korea. HHI plans to install a 5.5 MW prototype offshore wind turbine northwest off the coast of Jeju Island by the end of this year.
