WEBINAR: Certification for reliable growth of offshore wind in Korea

The rise of offshore wind energy in Korea requires extended risk management services via globally recognized certification standards.

According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Korea is targeting 9.2 GW of wind power by 2025 and 16 GW by 2030, of which 12 GW will comprise offshore wind. To achieve this, the government has recently announced plans to build an 8.2 GW offshore wind facility which could become the world’s largest offshore wind power plant.

Those ambitious targets are creating an increased need for extended risk management via globally recognized certification standards. At the beginning of this year, DNV has been selected by KEA to deliver Type Certification services for the Korean wind energy market. But the need goes beyond Type Certification. As wind farms will mainly be erected offshore, in greater water depths, harsh climates and remote locations, DNV observes that also wind farm developers are increasingly insisting on certification as a key risk mitigation measure in the technical due diligence process.

In this webinar, KEA and DNV will give an overview on local approval and certification requirements for offshore wind farms and will discuss details for the Type, Project and Floating Wind certification process to allow for a cost-efficient risk management process.
