SSE Renewables has announced the successful completion of two offshore survey campaigns for the 800MW Arklow Bank Wind Park 2 project. The surveys took place over an eight-week period during July and August.
Irish contractor Ground Investigation Ireland undertook a nearshore borehole campaign and Danish contractor Geo carried out cone penetration and Vibrocore testing. The information collected as part of these surveys enhances the project’s understanding of seabed conditions and will support ongoing design refinement and project development work. SSE Renewables is currently working towards submission of the final outstanding consent for Arklow Bank Wind Park 2 to An Bord Pleanála in the coming months. Consent has already been secured for the onshore grid infrastructure and for the operations and maintenance facility in Arklow Harbour’s South Dock.
