Green Investment Group awards ODE Korean Owner’s Engineering and Package Management Contract

14th July, 2021

Offshore Design Engineering Ltd has been chosen as Owner’s Engineer and Package Manager by Green Investment Group (GIG) for offshore wind farms in South Korea.

GIG is a specialist in green infrastructure principal investment, project development and delivery, green impact advisory, and the management of portfolio assets. Its track record, expertise and capability make it a global leader in green investment and development, dedicated to accelerating the green transition.

Across the contract, ODE will manage a range of packages including foundations, cables, electrical interface, and onshore engineering, and will support GIG through the concept, FEED and detailed design engineering phases.

This project award will see ODE’s Korea office, which opened in January 2021, executing engineering on projects totalling over 500MW in the country. ODE will deploy its international expertise through its APAC engineering team, drawing on experience gained from supporting the development of offshore wind farms in the UK, Europe, Japan, Vietnam and Taiwan.

Jinho Paik, ODE’s Korea Country Manager, said, “This is a significant milestone in the development of ODE’s operations in Korea; we are looking forward to collaborating with GIG to deliver these projects and to build relationships with our local suppliers.”

David Robertson, ODE’s Director of Renewables said, “This is another significant win for Jinho Paik and his team in Korea. We are delighted to be building on earlier successes in this dynamic and exciting market.”
