The Green Investment Group (GIG) of Macquarie and the global energy company Total signed a series of agreements to co-develop an initial 2,3 GW portfolio of floating offshore wind projects in Korea.
“Thanks in large part to the country’s world-class shipbuilding and marine plant infrastructure, GIG and Total see significant opportunities for floating offshore wind in Korea. We are committed to working with Korean companies and the local workforce as much as possible in order to support the Korean government’s Green New Deal plan, revitalize the economy and support jobs through Korea’s green transition.”
Mark Dooley, global head of GIG.
“South Korea benefits from a unique set of competencies and assets to become one of the leading players in the floating offshore wind sector. Total and GIG’s combined expertise and resources will contribute to the success of this strategy and help curb down the country’s carbon emissions, in line with our net zero ambition.”
Julien Pouget, senior vice-president renewables at Total.
