KHNP to develop 42MW wind farm in Korea

KHNP | MOU signing ceremony

Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP), a KEPCO subsidiary focusing on nuclear and hydropower, is widening its wind portfolio.

The public utility signed an MOU with Hanwha Engineering & Construction and GK Wind to develop a 42MW wind farm in Yeongcheon, North Gyeongsang Province, Korea. KHNP will manage the project and REC transactions, while Hanwha covers procurement and construction. GK Wind takes care of licensing and secures the project site.

Besides its day job of nuclear and hydropower, KHNP has a relatively small renewable portfolio in PV (28.28MW), wind (0.75MW), and fuel cell (109.6MW). In 2020, the company needs to meet 7.0% of RPS (Renewable Portfolio Standard), which, in Korea, mandates utilities over 500MW to supply a certain amount of electricity by renewable energy.

  1. 탈원전에 대한 우려가 많은데, 신재생 에너지 사업이 활발해지고 있는 것 같아 다행입니다. 현 정부는 탈원전에 대한 로드맵이 있는건지 궁금합니다. 이와 관련된 기사도 기회가 되면 소개해주세요.
