Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. (HHI) has completed the installation of its 5.5 MW offshore wind turbine prototype at the Kimnyeong Wind Farm, located on Jeju Island in South Korea.

The company says the offshore wind turbine, featuring a 100-meter hub height and 140-meter rotor diameter, is designed to withstand strong winds of 62.5 m/s and to be protected from corrosion caused by sea water.

HHI will start a test run on the turbine in March to obtain certification within this year, and a company official adds that HHI plans to speed up its marketing campaign for the turbine overseas in regions such as Europe.
