Second phase of 98 MW Gangwon wind farm complete

South Korea's largest wind farm is now operating, with the second phase of the Gangwon facility completed in late October to bring the project up from 28 MW to 98 MW. Comprising 49 Vestas 2 MW turbines, it is located in north-eastern Pyeonchang County. Developed by a joint venture involving Korean company Unison, Japan's Marubeni Corporation and Eurus Energy Japan (Windpower Monthly, July 2005), it will meet the electricity needs of an estimated 50,000 households. The project qualifies for carbon reduction credits under the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism.
