Vestas has won a contract to supply turbines for a wind project in South Korea.

The company claims it will be the nation’s largest wind farm in 10 years.

The Danish manufacturer will also be responsible for the supervision of the turbine installations.

Jung Maeng Hwa, General Manager of development and construction firm Hanwha E&C, which awarded the contract, said the YEP project is a “significant and symbolic development for South Korea’s renewable energy market”.

Delivery and commissioning of the turbines are expected in 2017.

Vestas has an installed capacity of 225MW in South Korea, accounting for around half of the total wind energy capacity in the country.
