MunmuBaram is a 1.3GW floating offshore wind project of Vestas in South Korea.

Proven technology

MunmuBaram will benefit from the introduction of the V236-15.0 MW wind turbine from the Danish company Vestas. The company will supply and install 84 units of this turbine. The park is located off the southeast coast of South Korea, between 65 and 80 kilometers from the city of Ulsan.

The turbines will be installed on floating foundations in the approximately 240 square kilometer project area. The selected site has water depths between 120 and 150 meters. The MunmuBaram project represents the first large-scale floating offshore site announced by Vestas.

In addition, Vestas announces that MunmuBaram is a joint venture between Shell and HEXICON AB. For Vestas this is the first order for the V236-15.0 MW turbine. Purvin Patel, President of Vestas Asia Pacific, says:

“We are honored to have been selected as the preferred supplier for the MunmuBaram Floating Offshore Wind Project and the trust the customers have placed in Vestas. We are delighted to be involved in this innovative project which is spearheading the global offshore wind industry and underlines our ambition to partner with our customers and suppliers to make floating offshore wind energy cost effective, scalable and usable . Vestas continues its ambition to be a leader in offshore wind and we remain committed to contributing to South Korea’s clean energy goal in close partnership with our customers.”

A renewed partnership

The Danish company will also provide 20 years of service and maintenance for the wind farm. Vestas will help create local jobs and provide training for offshore service technicians. With this project, MunmuBaram and Vestas together play a role in the development of the offshore wind industry in South Korea.

Vestas was installing more than 8GW or over 1500 offshore turbines worldwide. The company was building turbines off the coast of Scotland and Portugal. In addition, the MunmuBaram project is Vestas’ third partnership with Shell.

The two partners were developing the 730MW Borssele III/IV offshore wind project in the Netherlands. They also combined their expertise for the 1.5GW Atlantic Shores offshore wind project in the US. In addition, the latter site also integrates V236-15.0 MW turbines.
