TECHNIP ENERGIES LOGO HORIZONTAL RVB 2The FEED contract covers engineering of the floating wind turbine substructures for the proposed 800 megawatts offshore wind farm. The design of the substructures will include Technip Energies’ in-house floater technology INO15TM. With a capacity of 15 megawatts, INO15TM technology is a three columns semi-submersible floater which is well suited for fabrication in large series. The substructure design is in alignment with Equinor's wind semi design principles.

Firefly wind farm is planned for an area of 2 x 75 km2 off the coast of the city of Ulsan in South Korea and will serve to feed the Korean grid. It is planned to be in operation in 2027.

Willy Gauttier, VP Offshore Floating Wind at Technip Energies, commented: “We are glad to have been awarded this FEED b your long-lasting client Equinor and that the INO15TM floater technology has been selected for the development of the offshore wind farm. It perfectly illustrates that engineering and technology will be key to accelerate the energy transition. Through the Firefly project, we are committed to support Equinor in its objective to reach an installed net renewables capacity of 12-16 gigawatts by 2030.”
