The Project

The Oriel Project Area is located in the Irish Sea off the coast of County Louth, to the East of Dundalk Bay. Following an extensive review of sites in the Irish Sea, the most suitable area for developing an offshore energy project was the Oriel location. The wind farm will have a capacity of up to 370 MW, which will significantly contribute to the renewable energy target for Ireland.


The Challenge

Design of the wind farm, to maximise efficiency whilst reducing any impacts on the environment and local community. These plans, including the project design and environmental reports to be put forward for planning for both offshore and onshore elements in 2021.
