Canada’s Northland Power could have offshore wind turbines spinning off Korea even sooner than its Taiwanese projects reach completion, following its recently sealed partnership with Kepco E&C, chief executive Mike Crawley tells Recharge.

Northland is also speaking to potential partners in Japan, where the parliament recently passed a bill backing offshore wind, and Crawley describes strong market fundamentals across northeastern Asia – including for floating projects.

Northland may soon have development offices open in Taipei, Seoul, and Tokyo, opening a new chapter for the Toronto-based independent power producer.
