Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) won an order to supply 20 sets of 2 MW wind turbines from DaeMyoung GEC for Yeongam wind farm in South Korea. The work scope also includes installation supervision and commissioning and, additionally, a long-term maintenance service agreement is in discussion for signature soon. The turbines, designed for low wind conditions, are scheduled for delivery in July this year. Finalization of the wind farm is planned for November. According to HHI, the 40 MW Yeongam wind farm will be Korea’s largest onshore wind farm built with wind turbines supplied by a Korean company. It will generate enough electricity for approximately 30,000 households.With its total annual production capacity of 600 MW, HHI, South Korea’s biggest wind turbine supplier, has also recently installed combined 24 MW wind turbines in Taebaek wind farm and Changjuk wind farm in Gangwon Province, Korea. Furthermore, HHI plans to install a 5.5 MW prototype offshore wind turbine northwest off the coast of Jeju Island by the end of this year.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
