Wind Minds have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Korean company Doarm Engineering to develop offshore wind farms in South Korea, according to Hans Rijntalder, a renewable energy consultant and founder of Pondera Consult, one of four companies that form Wind Minds.
The MoU arose from the Dutch trade mission to Korea and Japan last year, which ran parallel to the state visit by the Dutch King and Queen. The MoU incorporates two offshore wind projects with a capacity of around 100MW each. The offshore wind sites are located close to the shore of the island Jeju in Korea. “Doarm and Wind Minds have the intention to develop these sites, using the global offshore wind experience of Wind Minds”, Hans Rijntalder said. Rijntalder also pointed out that Doarm Engineering is a well-known local engineering company with several onshore and offshore sites in development.
