Green Rebel Marine, a new business established to service the future needs of offshore wind farms, has announced plans to create 80 jobs in Cork (Ireland) over the next 18 months.
The company also announced it had bought Crosshaven Boatyard in Co Cork. The site will serve as a base for the new operation to survey, equip and service a network of planned wind farms along the Irish coast. Green Rebel Marine was founded by Cork businessman Pearse Flynn. He has invested € 10 million of his own money into the project, including the purchase of two ships to service this nascent industry. The first vessel - the Bibby Athena, which will be renamed to Roman Rebel - has already arrived into Cork. The second is scheduled to arrive later this year.
