A South Korean consortium is setting about developing a floating offshore plant using wind power to produce hydrogen. The aim is to produce a 1 MW pilot plant in 2022 before developing and demonstrating a gigawatt-class plant in 2030.

The consortium is led by Korea Maritime & Ocean University (KOMU) and class society Korean Register (KR).
KOMU already has a patented floating nuclear power system that it is promoting.
