The North Celtic Sea Wind Farm is one of Ireland's most advanced offshore energy projects. Subject to progressing through statutory approvals, construction could commence in 2026 in time to meet Ireland’s 2030 climate action targets. The project will generate clean electricity for over 500,000 Irish homes and businesses.

The geophysical and geotechnical surveys which were completed now, started back in April this year. The surveys measured important information on seabed conditions including water depth, sediment type and habitat distribution which will inform the continued project design including the number, size and optimum placement of the wind turbines.

Energia Offshore Renewables Manager, Eoin McPartland said, “We’re at an exciting stage of the North Celtic Sea project off the coast of Waterford. The completion of our seabed surveys is an important milestone as we continue our steady progress to realise the potential of this development for offshore renewable energy in Ireland."

In addition to the North Celtic Sea project, Energia Renewables is also progressing the South Irish Sea offshore project off the coasts of Wexford and Wicklow. The seabed surveys for this project are nearing completion.
