Gaelectric has partnered with Ideol, to develop floating offshore wind energy projects in Irish waters using Ideol’s patented ‘Damping Pool’ technology.

Gaelectric and Ideol are investigating several sites in Irish waters for both short term pre-commercial and long term commercial-scale projects, with an initial objective to develop a 30MW+ turbine array project, followed by a multi-GW commercial-scale extension on both Irish coasts.
