Codling Wind Park Limited is proposing to develop the Codling Wind Park Project, an offshore wind farm located in the Irish Sea approximately 13-22km off the east coast of Ireland, at County Wicklow. Codling Wind Park is a 50:50 joint venture between EDF Renewables and Fred. Olsen Seawind.
With a potential generating output of up to 1,500 megawatts, it could supply the equivalent of up to 1.2 million Irish homes with renewable electricity, save almost 2 million tonnes of carbon emissions every year, and make a significant contribution to meeting the Irish Government’s climate objectives.
EirGrid, operators of the grid transmission network, have identified Poolbeg as the likely connection node for the offshore wind farm into the national grid. Codling Wind Park is therefore exploring options in the Poolbeg area for locating their onshore works, including a new onshore substation, a landfall location and underground cables linking the two.
TOBIN Consulting Engineers (TOBIN) have been appointed as Planning & Environmental Consultants for the onshore works. We have been commissioned to prepare and deliver the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR), Natura Impact Statement (NIS) and planning application documents associated with the onshore works.
Environmental baseline surveys are currently underway, and TOBIN will be working closely with Codling Wind Park in progressing the impact assessments, over the coming months.
