Construction On A Major Off-Shore Windfarm Off The Coast Of Cork Could Begin In The Next 6 Years
Backers of the windfarm are targeting a 2026 start
The Echo reports that the farm will run from Dungarvan to Cork Harbour.
The 925 square kilometre project is backed by DP Energy Ireland, a renewable energy organisation headquartered in Cork, who specialise in wind, tidal, and solar energy.
Public consultation opened recently on the application for the proposed windfarm, with DPEI projecting a 2026 'in-the-water' start date.
