Codling Bank II will be an extension of the consented Codling Bank wind farm.
Who is developing the Codling Bank offshore wind farm?
The Project is being developed by Codling Wind Park Ltd (CWPL), a joint venture partnership between Fred. Olsen Renewables (FOR) and EDF Renewables (EDFR).
Individually, both FOR and EDFR have strong track records across the renewable energy sector and jointly, as Codling Wind Park Ltd they have created a partnership to deliver a commercial-scale offshore wind farm.
Where will the offshore wind farm be located?
The wind farm will be located to the east of the shallow sandbank known as Codling Bank, approximately 13 kilometres off the east coast of Ireland, between Greystones and Wicklow, and benefitting from the favourable conditions for offshore wind energy off the east coast of Ireland.
The closest towns of Kilcoole and Greystones are both situated some 14.8 km from the wind farm area, and Wicklow is situated 17 km to the southwest.
We are currently undertaking technical, environmental, socio-economic and commercial studies to determine the maximum installed capacity of Codling Wind Park. Subject to the consenting process we anticipate that Codling Wind Park will be constructed in the mid-2020s.
