An Bord Pleanála’s decision to grant planning permission to develop the onshore infrastructure to connect the Arklow Bank Wind Park to Ireland’s electricity transmission grid has been hailed as an “historic first” for Arklow.

The Bord’s decision means that SSE Renewables has become the first renewable energy company to secure consent to develop onshore transmission grid infrastructure for an Irish offshore wind farm.
