Macquarie’s Green Investment Group announced that it has completed the installation of Korea’s first floating LiDAR. The installation of the LiDAR is one of the first critical steps in the development of GIG’s first Korean offshore wind farm located about 60 kilometers east of Seosang-myon, Ulju-gun, Ulsan City.The Ulsan project is a 1.4 GW offshore wind project, which is being progressed in three separate phases. Development of the first 400 MW phase is targeted for completion in 2022.

The LiDAR is a wind resource assessment device which will collect data on the site of the wind farm to help determine its suitability for development. It will collect critical data relating to wind speed and direction which will support GIG in designing the project and evaluating its influence on the environment, ecosystem and fishing industry. The LiDAR assessment period will last approximately two years, during which time detailed project plans will continue to be developed in collaboration with stakeholders and related organisations.

While floating LiDAR systems are commonly used across Europe and other advanced offshore wind markets this is first time it has been used in Korea for a commercial offshore wind farm.

GIG is committed to maximising the local economic impact of the development and is actively seeking the participation of local companies and academics. Korea Maritime University, Zen Limited and Vision Plus are currently working with the project, managing the design and stability testing of berthing facilities, installation and operations.
