Two Korean talents join COP office in Copenhagen

Two Korean talents join COP office in Copenhagen for a one-year traineeship

Starting from February 2020, Tae Hyun Kim and Wonjung Chung will work for COP Headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The two highly skilled candidates are two graduates from Korea who will have the chance to enrich their professional experience with a one-year traineeship in our Danish office. This traineeship is made possible thanks to a collaboration between the Innovation Centre Denmark Seoul (ICDK) and the Korea Association of Robot Industry (KAR) with the sponsorship from the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) and Copenhagen Offshore Partners. The project offers the chance for recently graduated Korean students to have an international and formative working experience.

I’m very excited to be involved in the growing industry of offshore wind energy. I hope I can further develop my skills and career as a windfarm engineer”, says Wonjung Chung, current graduate at Seoul National University. She will help in identifying new market opportunities in the sector and analyzing energy yield. Tae Hyun Kim, who graduated a few years ago and joined COP as a PMO consultant, states:”As Korea is transitioning into renewable energy, I think it is a good opportunity for me to build an exciting career in offshore wind.”

Copenhagen Offshore Partners is currently developing offshore wind power projects in Korean waters and seeking additional opportunities. Copenhagen Offshore Partners has keen interest in training local experts in offshore wind power sector in an effort to support Korean government’s “Renewable Energy 3020” to realize Korea’s offshore wind vision and goals. Copenhagen Offshore Partners is going to seek additional opportunity to support young talents like Wonjung and Tae Hyun in the coming days.
