Wind Energy – Ireland
SSE Renewables has submitted an application to the Irish Government for a Maritime Area Consent (MAC) for Phase 2 of its Arklow Bank Wind Park offshore wind energy project.
Phase 2 of Arklow Bank Wind Park will be located in an area situated six to 13km off the Co Wicklow coastline, to the east of Arklow.
The development builds on the existing GE-owned seven turbines that comprise the operational first phase of the wind park.
It is targeting delivery of up to 800MW of installed offshore wind energy under the Government’s new Maritime Area Planning (MAP) Act process.
This latest application is the next step forward in plans by SSE Renewables to progress this important offshore wind energy project for Ireland.
