Wind Energy – East Celtic
RWE has bought East Celtic wind farm off the Wexford coast from Irish company Western Power Offshore Holdings.
RWE plans to spend €1.5 billion in the Republic on green energy projects between now and 2030.
The German-based multinational confirmed on Wednesday that it has bought the East Celtic wind farm from its Irish owner, Western Power Offshore Holdings, for an undisclosed sum.
Located in the Celtic Sea between 9km and 36km off the Wexford and Waterford coasts, East Celtic’s first phase will deliver 900 megawatts of electricity, roughly similar to two power plants, by 2030.
