The partnership will initially focus on Ireland’s south and east coasts, where Energia Renewables have already completed development work over the last 4 years at a North Celtic Sea site (with capacity of up to 900 MW) and a South Irish Sea site (with capacity of up to 900 MW).
Across the sites, seabed surveys have been completed, almost 3 years of aerial data on birds and mammals has been collected, and detailed preparations for the environmental impact assessments have commenced. Engagement programmes with local fisheries and communities are also in place. The preparatory work positions both these projects to be capable of being operational by 2030, subject to government policy.
