The project will be implemented in stages.
The first stage of the project comprises of two phases. The first phase will be a pilot 9MW wind farm (3x3MW). Following to the successful installation of the first phase, the work on the second phase will be commenced which comprises of a 90MW (3x30MW) wind farm.
The second and third stages of the project include the construction of 2,400MW offshore wind farm and related facilities.
In May 2011, the government identified Young-Kwang area for the test facility of the project
The government signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with state-run Korea Electricity Power Corporation (KEPCO). The KEPCO will form a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for the project implementation.
Det Norske Veritas has been appointed as a lead consultant.
Unison, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Samsung Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering were appointed to supply wind turbines for the project. However, in the first quarter of 2015, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Samsung Heavy Industries withdrew from the project.
The project will be partly funded by the South Korean government, but a large amount of the investment will come from private firms and investors.
Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction will undertake the construction works on the project.
K2 management was appointed as the engineering consultant for the development.
In June 2016, MKE and Dutch offshore wind consultancy Wind Minds signed a letter of intent on cooperation in developing the project.
