Partnership with SerFac aims to provide efficient project development of offshore wind farm projects.

Global Renewables Shipbrokers (GRS) has started a strategic partnership with South Korean wind project development consultancy SerFac.

The aim of the cooperation is to provide fast and first-class project development of offshore wind farm projects in South Korea, GRS said.

Earlier this month, the South Korean energy ministry announced its intention to boost its renewable energy share in electricity generation by 20% by the year 2030.

GRS says that this corresponds to an increase in South Korea’s generation capacity from the current 11,000MW to around 58,500MW.

GRS managing partner Matthias Mross said: “The South Korean government has ambitious plans for the expansion of offshore wind energy and will be providing us with a lot of opportunities in the coming years.

“Building on our experience and expertise, we can ensure that mistakes will be avoided and expansion targets achieved.”

SerFac managing director Namhee Lim said: “We are very happy to have found a partner with GRS who is experienced in wind energy on a global scale.

“The synergies created will enable us to keep on pushing our expansion in the growing offshore wind energy market in the Asiatic Pacific region.”
