At ESB we know the importance of offshore wind in tackling climate change and delivering Net Zero. Ireland has a unique capability given its prime location to take advantage of the potential of offshore wind. We are working hard to develop offshore wind projects for the benefit of everyone across society, and this includes ongoing engagement with marine users and local communities so that we can deliver these significant projects.
Celtic One Offshore Wind is a proposed 800MW fixed-bottom offshore wind farm, to be located approximately 8km south of Ballycotton, County Cork. Celtic Two is a proposed 800MW floating offshore wind farm, to be located approximately 27km south of Ballycotton, County Cork. To give local communities the opportunity to learn more about the project, we are hosting a series of public exhibitions. The exhibitions are a follow-on from the project’s virtual consultation room (open online from 28th June to 8th August 2022) and will offer attendees the opportunity to review up-to-date information on the project as well as to meet with the project team.
The exhibitions will take place as follows:
Tuesday 13th December, 4-8pm, Cumann na Daoine, Catherine Street, Youghal
Wednesday 14th December, 4-8pm, Sea Church, Ballycotton
Thursday 15th December, 4-8pm, Commodore Hotel, 4 Westbourn Place, Cobh
