Hybrid Energy Platform to be Installed at Jeju Island South Korea
Aberdeen-headquartered subsea cable and connector specialist Hydro Group plc has been awarded a contract with Korea Research of Ships & Ocean Engineering (KRISO) worth approximately £750,000.
The scope of work included delivering subsea cable and connectors to the first phase of KRISO’s floating wind and wave hybrid energy platform in November 2017. Installation of the first phase will be undertaken this year.
Located at Jeju Island in South Korea, the floating platform will be equipped with four offshore wind turbines, one in each corner, and wave energy converter buoys along the side. This design enables the platform to become a power generation system, producing energy from both wind and wave.
