innogy Renewables Ireland (innogy) has partnered with Irish company Saorgus Energy to continue the development of the Dublin Array Offshore Wind Farm Project, a major offshore development project, located in the Irish Sea off the coast of Dublin. The project is in development phase and innogy is leading on the development of the project on behalf of the partnership.
In September 2019, innogy applied to the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government for a licence under the Foreshore Act to enable the project to undertake further surveys of the seabed and to install buoy mounted equipment to provide data on weather and sea conditions. The information collected will be used to progress the engineering design and to inform the ongoing environmental assessments required as part of the consent process.
Please note that it is not the final planning application for the project. Consent of this Foreshore licence will enable innogy to continue with the development of the project. We are expecting to submit the application for planning consent in 2021.
We have a comprehensive stakeholder and community engagement programme planned for 2020 to ensure that everyone has a chance to talk to us about the project. We will be updating this website regularly particularly the project summary details as the project development progresses.
