In Korea, each new offshore wind project will need to navigate the critical first step of obtaining the much needed environmental permits and licences. This will require a deep understanding of both the local EIA regulations, whilst also meeting the expectations and standards of international finance (ESIA).
Offshore wind consenting (AKA permitting or approvals) can be one of the major bottlenecks for project development. Korea currently has a multi-agency consenting process and a 'One Stop Shop' process is being debated. RPS’ Alun Williams discusses the advantages of a single-agency consenting process – a ‘One Stop Shop’ – for evolving markets like South Korea.
Meet our South Korea Country Manager Sam Roh. Sam joined RPS in South Korea March 2020, just as we were starting to feel the impact of COVID related travel restrictions. Here he shares his story – including his insights of the Korean offshore wind market, how he was our ‘boots on the ground’ to support our floating LiDAR buoy deployment for Equinor, and what’s next for RPS in South Korea.
