When complete in 2027, the Chujin plant will be South Korea’s largest commercial-scale offshore wind farm. DNV will supervise the final design, procurement, construction, commissioning, and operations phases and work on solutions for the building stages of the project.

The wind farm will be 10 kilometers east of Chuja-do in Jeju City in southern Jeonam province, South Korea and will include about 100 wind turbines. The project will be constructed in three stages, consisting of 500 MW for Phase 1 and another 1 GW for phases 2 and 3.

The project will support the “Green New Deal,” South Korea’s development strategy to advance low carbon technology initiatives.
