G8, Holim Tech to develop 1.5GW offshore wind plant in South Korea

This will provide power to about 500,000 homes and businesses.

Singapore-based Subsea engineering solutions provider G8 Subsea and South Korea-based industrial business group Holim Tech have signed an agreement to develop a 1.5-gigawatt offshore wind plant in South Korea. 

G8 said in a statement that the plant can provide renewable energy to 500,000 homes and businesses.

The overall power plant will be paired with the next generation ultra-long-life Lithium-Ion energy storage system to provide stable and high-quality power management to the grid,” it said. 

Gerald Tan, managing director of G8 Group, said the project marks its continuation of wind farm projects in South Korea following the Gochang Phase 1in 2017 with a 60-megawatt capacity.

“This project will be an important step for both G8 and the South Korean Wind Power industry, as it will be one of the largest offshore wind farm projects in Asia to utilise our next-generation energy storage technologies, offering our commercial and utility clients a complete and long-lasting energy storage solution,” he said.

The South Korean government targets renewables to account for 20% of its generation capacity by 2030, according to the Korean New Deal report in July 2020 by the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

It also invested US$61.4b to the Green New Deal, a strategy to ensure sustainability, as well as environmental and ecological protection, focusing on green transition of infrastructures, low-carbon and decentralised energy, and innovation in the green industry.

The two will collaborate to assess the role of green hydrogen in India’s energy transition.
This was met by renewables as well as coal, and gas generation.
It forms part of a 470MW battery project.          
About 120GW of new solar and wind capacity is expected in 2022.  
The agreement includes exploration of offshore wind projects.
The growth rate stabilises following an 8% increase in 2021.
This is a 10-fold increase from the Philippines grid-connected solar capacity.
32 nuclear reactors under construction are expected to bring 30GW in electricity per year.
Without banking power, the business model of solar power becomes unviable.
It is ideal for India because of its geographical location and the socio-economic opportunities it will offer, IEEFA Contributor Charles Worringham argues.
It will look into the development of a 1.2GW solar capacity in Indonesia.
The joint venture will operate under the brand Solar Radiance.
This is to support the increasing demand, according to Wood Mackenzie.
The joint venture is expected to start operations in the first half of 2022.
The product will allow coverage of consequential loss due to damages on property during PV installation.
