Vestas has won a preferred supplier deal to deliver 15MW turbines to the 1.3GW MunmuBaram floating wind project being developed off South Korea by a joint venture of oil & gas giant Shell and Swedish floating wind pioneer Hexicon.

The Danish OEM is slated to supply and install 84 of its V236-15.0 machines at water depths between 120 and 150 metres on floating foundations at the project area of about 240km2 off the coast of Ulsan in the southeastern part of the Korean Peninsula.
