Under the terms of the MOU, the two parties will cooperate across all stages of the offshore wind value chain, including R&D, demonstration, and commercialisation of 20 MW-plus next generation offshore wind turbines. The two companies will also work together on building a large-scale commercialisation complex to promote the Korean domestic offshore wind ecosystem and will collaborate on targeting the global market.
Doosan Enerbility will design, manufacture, and demonstrate the next generation offshore wind turbines, while KOMIPO will be responsible for providing support in the form of related technologies and project delivery.
Yeonin Jung, President and COO of Doosan Enerbility, said: “If we wish to effectively promote the Korean domestic offshore wind ecosystem, it’s important that we make efforts that go beyond product development and seek to identify business opportunities that will make this all possible. By working together with KOMIPO, we aim to equip ourselves with competitive world-class technologies, with which we will do our best to establish a foundation for growth of our overseas exports.”
