The deal involves investigations of potential collaboration between the two companies in large-scale offshore wind turbines, sharing of major services including construction of new Korean production facilities, the supply of wind turbine parts, offshore wind turbine installation, and turbine maintenance.
It will also explore a Korean domestic supply chain and related industries. Furthermore, it will study potential job creation and industrialization in the Korean offshore wind power market.
Doosan Enerbility is intended to contribute its experience, domestic production base and business capabilities while Siemens Gamesa's will offer its global know-how in offshore wind.
