DP Energy has awarded the offshore wind consultants OWC a contract to conduct geophysical and geotechnical site characterisation for an offshore wind project in Ireland. OWC, which is part of ABL Group, has been awarded the work for the Inis Ealga Marine Energy Park (South Coast), which is a potential 1,000MW project located off the counties of Waterford and Cork.
DP Energy entered a joint venture with Iberdrola to develop the Inis Ealga Marine Energy Park along with two other projects on the East and West coast of Ireland. The Inis Ealga Marine Energy Park project is in its early development stage, with site investigation surveys being planned. OWC’s scope of work is to provide preliminary site characterisation using currently available data and provide input to the planned site investigation surveys mentioned, maximising opportunities for efficient and targeted data collection to support project engineering. East Point Geo, a sister company to OWC, will be delivering the work.
