July 27, 2021

Offshore Wind Biz:

A joint venture between Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios and Flotation Energy has revealed its plan to apply for development consent to build offshore wind farms in Ireland, once the country’s new legislative framework is in place.

Offshore Wind Ltd (OWL) plans to build one wind farm, called Greystones, in the waters off the Irish coast near Dublin. The offshore wind project, called Greystones, would use bottom-fixed foundations and have an installed capacity of 1 GW.

Off the south east coast of Ireland, OWL plans to develop the Blackwater project, which would have an installed capacity of 1.5 GW and would utilise floating wind technology.

Cobra is also behind the Kincardine floating wind farm in Scotland, currently the world’s largest floating wind farm, where the final 9.525 MW floating wind turbine was installed this month.
