Daewoo to Supply Korean Project with 10 Wind Turbines

Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co., the world’s third-largest shipbuilder by revenue, said it will supply South Korea with 10 wind power turbines this year.

Daewoo will supply the 2-megawatt capacity turbines to a joint venture with Korea East-West Power Co. The turbines will go to a wind farm project in Younggwang, southwest of Seoul, the company said in a statement.

The project will generate enough electricity to supply 13,000 households a year once it is completed in the third quarter, Daewoo said, without disclosing the project’s cost. The shipbuilder acquired DeWind Inc. from Irvine-based Composite Technology Corp. for about $50 million in 2009 to move into the wind-turbine industry. It is building wind turbines using DeWind technology to meet demand from the U.S. and Canada.
