The West South Offshore Wind Power System Internal Network Construction

The West South Offshore Wind Power System Internal Network Construction

Taihan manufactured and supplied 22.9kV distribution-class optical hybrid submarine cables for the West South Offshore Wind Farm, Korea’s first large-scale offshore wind power system project led by the Korean government. This has a significant meaning in that it was the first project undertaken after the Dangjin factory was newly equipped with mass-production facilities for distribution-class submarine cables.

As recognized for the technologies and quality product through winning this project, Taihan expects to secure competitive advantages even in the follow-up and related projects such as pilot farms and diffusion farms.

Supplied products and solutions

  • 22.9kV submarine cables and cable accessories
  • Terminal construction of submarine cables
  • Installation and laying of submarine cables (consortium of suppliers)

Construction of Coastal Factory to Lay the Foundation for Quantum Jump

Taihan is promoting a coastal factory capable of producing large-scale submarine cables. Having confirmed Kodae district of Asan National Industrial Complex located in Dangjin-si, Chungcheongnam-do as the site for a new factory for submarine cables, Taihan plans to build factory facilities capable of producing 66kV class internal network and 154kV class external network by 2023. In addition, by gradually expanding production lines to 345kV external network, extra-high-voltage direct current transmission (HVDC), submarine cables, etc., and improving construction capabilities, Taihan will concentrate all its capabilities on establishing as a professional offshore wind power solution company.

At first, we had a lot of difficulties in entering submarine cables market
because we did not have enough experience in all aspects of sales, technologies, manufacturing, inspection, etc. However, we were able to overcome these difficulties and successfully complete the project thanks to the passion of the staff in charge and their bravery stepping up to challenges and the experience and know-how accumulated in the cable & solution field. We will successfully complete the coastal factory construction and further strive to expand our position in the global submarine cables market.
