Offshore Design Engineering (ODE) has been selected as Owner’s Engineer for Codling Wind Park, an offshore wind farm off the County Wicklow coast, Ireland. ODE will be working closely with client Codling Wind Park Ltd (CWPL), a 50/50 joint venture between Fred. Olsen Renewables and EDF Renewables.
Initially planned as two separate wind farms, the now-combined Codling Wind Park is expected to span an area of around 125km2 approximately 13-22 kilometres off the County Wicklow coast, between Greystones and Wicklow Town. The project is anticipated to have an installed capacity of 900-1500MW and use up to 140 wind turbine generators. A planning application is expected to be submitted in the first half of 2022. As Owner’s Engineer, ODE will be overseeing the concept and feasibility development of the wind turbine foundations, onshore and offshore substation, and array cables. ODE will also be providing a wider range of technical expertise as necessary in support of the project.
