ESB is applying for a foreshore license to carry out studies on a possible wind farm off the coast of Wicklow



ESB Wind Development is requesting authorization to carry out site studies within the framework of the development of a possible wind farm off the coasts of Wicklow and Dublin.

A subsidiary of ESB, the developer has opened a public consultation as part of its application for authorization for foreshore to perform site survey work for the proposed development, which is known as “Sea Stacks Offshore Wind ”.

This application is for a foreshore license to conduct site surveys. A separate authorization would be required to build a wind farm.

The site is approximately 12 km off the Irish Sea and stretches between Bull Island and Greystones.

The proposed site studies include geophysical and geotechnical studies, environmental, ecological and archaeological studies.

ESB Wind Development stated that these studies are necessary to assess the feasibility of the project, the conditions at the site and along the cable route, and the development of the project. Demand indicates that the wind farm could generate up to 800 MW of energy.

The deadline for written submissions is January 30. Submissions can be made to the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Foreshore Section, Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Newtown Road, Wexford, Co. Wexford; or send an email to [email protected]
