- DUBLIN ARRAY

Dublin Array is an offshore wind farm that is being developed by Saorgus Energy. It is located on the Kish and Bray Banks in the Irish Sea approximately 10 km to the east of the coasts of Dublin and Wicklow. The wind farm will consist of 145 turbines arranged in rows four to five deep that run north-south along the banks. With a potential installed capacity of 520 MW, Dublin Array will generate enough green electricity to meet the demands of over 450,000 homes.

Under current national policy objectives, the power generated will be exported to the United Kingdom, where there is significant demand for renewable energy. By helping to create a new export industry, Dublin Array will also provide a very significant economic stimulus to Ireland which will result in foreign investment, sustainable job creation and a new source of long term revenue for the State from foreshore rent, income tax and corporation tax.

Wind monitoring has been undertaken on the Kish Lighthouse for a number of years and wind resource assessment has been completed. Geotechnical investigations, including seismic and bathymetric surveys, and borehole drilling have also been completed on the banks.

Dublin Array has secured a connection to the Irish national grid for 364 MW. Wind monitoring has been undertaken on the Kish Lighthouse for a number of years and wind resource assessment has been completed. Geotechnical investigations, including seismic and bathymetric surveys, and borehole drilling have also been completed on the banks.

Two foreshore lease applications have been lodged with the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government for permission to construct Dublin Array. The Environmental Impact Statement and Natura Impact Statement from these applications are now available in a number of public venues in counties Dublin and Wicklow for viewing by the public (for further details see www.dublinarray.com). The environmental information is also available for download on the project website.
