Location & Visuals


The area being considered is located off the coast of Dublin, Meath and Louth. The closest potential turbine location would be 12.5km from shore.

When determining the location of the project, a major consideration is the balance between maximising the distance from the coast but ensuring the seabed is suitable for fixed-base wind turbines. Fixed-base turbines can be constructed in waters up to a depth of 50 to 60 metres.

This would mean that within the MAC Marine Area Consent – Projects that obtain a MAC are required to apply for all requisite consents and planning permission and will be subject to the full assessment procedures by An Bord Pleanála.  area associated with this project, turbines would be located between circa 12.5km and circa 29km offshore.

As the design is finalised, we will continue to revise the distance and layout of the wind turbines in consideration of the visual appropriateness of the local area.

What could the Wind Farm look like?

With this project being in the Design Review Stage, our photomontages of what the project will look like will be generated and posted in this section once the design layout has been confirmed.

We are currently working on creating photomontages of the proposed working design layout which will include between approximately 34 and 46 turbines. These photomontages will form a key part to our next phase of public consultation, due to commence in June 2023.

Please refer back to this page for our photomontages.
