The EDF Group has acquired a 50% interest in the Codling offshore wind farm project in Ireland from Hazel Shore. Its subsidiary EDF Renewables will now partner with Fred Olsen Renewables, which already owns 50% to develop and build the project.
The Codling project is located south of Dublin, 13 km off the coast of County Wicklow. The initial development work started in 2003. Codling is spread across two sites, one of which,Codling 1, is consented. As an indication, the capacity of the project should be around 1 GW of installed capacity.
