Arklow Bank Offshore Substation Phase 2 Technical Safety Studies

Arklow Bank Offshore Substation Phase 2 Technical Safety Studies

About The Project

Arklow Bank Wind Park 2 is set to be situated off the coast of Arklow, Co. Wicklow, representing the upcoming stage in wind energy development at Arklow Bank. The project, currently in the development phase, aims to achieve a maximum export capacity of up to 800MW. The initial phase of the Wind Park, established in 2003/04, featured seven wind turbines with a total capacity of 25.2 MW. This inaugural phase, owned and operated by GE Energy under a sublease to the foreshore lease, stands as the first and sole operational offshore wind farm in Ireland.

Upon completion, Arklow Bank Wind Park 2 is poised to power nearly 850,000 homes annually—nearly double the homes targeted in the project’s initial iteration. Additionally, the project is expected to offset approximately 830 million kilograms of harmful carbon emissions each year.

Scope of Work
