PARIS — The DORIS/Hyundai Heavy Industries consortium has been awarded a FEED contract by Corio Generation and TotalEnergies for their Ulsan Gray Whale 3 offshore wind farm project offshore the east coast of South Korea.
The FEED contract covers the full integrated scope of activities related to the floating units, including the design, procurement and installation of the floaters and their station keeping systems, the procurement, laying and connections of the interarray cables to the floaters as well as the activities related to the integration of the turbines on the floaters.
The Gray Whale 3 Project, aiming to develop a 504-MW floating offshore wind farm located about 60 to 70 km from Onsan Port in Ulsan, is one of the three offshore wind projects with a total installed capacity of 1.5 GW that Corio and TotalEnergies are promoting off the coast of Ulsan (project name: Gray Whale 1,2,3).
The consortium aims to enhance and scale up the Hi-Float design developed for the Jeju Pilot to accommodate the high-power turbines of Gray Whale and to ensure an industrial scale production scheme will match with the ultimate 1.5 GW of clean electricity production objectives.
This approach should lead the consortium to successfully complete the FEED and continue together through the development of the EPSCI phase, upon success by 2024.
