In order to establish the most appropriate turbine locations and cable routes, investigation works have been undertaken that will provide information on the existing seabed and geotechnical conditions. These investigations will ensure we understand the local area as much as possible before we submit our planning application.
Two foreshore licences have been awarded to NISA by the Department of Planning, Housing and Local Government for consideration. These permit the initial offshore survey effort to inform WTG locations and cabling arrangements.
NISA have been coordinating with the fisheries industry and all other relevant stakeholders in order to avoid any unnecessary disruption to existing activities. NISA remains committed to working positively with the fishing industry going forward.
