Fugro will carry out a metocean and wind resource measurement campaign on the west coast of South Korea, offshore Yeonggwang County.

The project site is currently in the initial investigation stage to assess its suitability for investment, said the Dutch firm.

Fugro will provide a turnkey solution encompassing technology deployment, provisioning, operations, maintenance, and comprehensive data reporting.

A total of four Seawatch LiDAR buoys, which have been deployed within the study area, will measure a comprehensive range of metocean parameters including wind, waves, current and meteorological conditions.


Fugro said the data collection will take place in the next twelve months, with real-time provision for decision-makers and consultants with data in advance of final reporting.

“The acquisition of quality site data is critical to optimise the offshore windfarms design to the specific site conditions, for cost and risk minimisation… Accurate data is essential for our decision making, giving insights into the viability of our plans,” said Mike Hallett, Director of Engineering, KREDO Offshore.

Back in 2018, the government set a 2030 offshore wind target of 12 GW in its Renewable Energy 3020 Implementation Plan, which was reaffirmed by the now-former South Korea’s president Moon Jae-in in 2020.

Since 2022, it has been reported that South Korea has a target of reaching 14.3 GW of offshore wind power by 2030.
