Spanish energy company Siemens Gamesa and Doosan Group subsidiary Doosan Enerbility have agreed to explore potential cooperation on offshore wind power activities in South Korea.

The two companies signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MoU) in Copenhagen, Denmark, to assess the scope of collaboration on large-scale offshore wind turbines, including the installation, maintenance and supply of turbine parts.

They will also explore the sharing of services for the construction of production facilities in South Korea.

In addition, the partnership will study potential job creation and industrialisation in the country’s offshore wind segment.

Siemens Gamesa offshore business unit CEO Marc Becker said: “We are delighted to start to work with Doosan Enerbility in investigating a strategic cooperation in Korea.

“Leading the offshore revolution in the years to come requires strong partnerships based on solid, mutual commitments.

“We envision an excellent alliance between our two companies, fostering the Korean offshore wind industry and contributing to its expansion.”

The companies’ potential collaboration is expected to make use of Doosan Enerbility’s domestic production base, business capabilities and experience, as well as Siemens Gamesa’s knowledge of the global offshore wind space.

Doosan Enerbility Power Service sales and marketing executive vice-president Seung-woo Sohn said: “By combining SGRE’s global business know-how with our own technological capabilities accumulated over the years, we will be able to improve more rapidly our competitiveness in the offshore wind power business.

“The cooperation between the two companies will also contribute to revitalising the offshore wind power ecosystem in Korea.”

Last week, Siemens Gamesa received a contract to deliver 60 wind turbine units for the Moray West offshore wind project in Scotland.

The company will supply its SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines for the 882MW project, which is located in Scotland’s Moray Firth inlet.
