Bureaucratic delays are hampering the Government’s offshore wind objectives for 2030

SSE Renewables has warned that Ireland’s ability to achieve its offshore wind target for 2030 is being “undermined” by delays.

The company – which bought Airtricity who co-developed the 25-megawatt (MW) Arklow Bank Wind Park off the shores of Co Wicklow, with GE Energy – has plans to invest up to €2bn developing a second phase of the wind farm. The Arklow Bank Wind Park Phase 2 could generate enough energy to power almost 450,000 homes annually.
