We have been engaging with local stakeholders in relation to the Arklow Bank Wind Park 2 for a number of years.
We are committed to working with local communities and stakeholders to gather feedback and local information that will inform the project on an ongoing. Local knowledge is key to us so that we understand the issues that are important to the community and can refine our plans accordingly.
We commit to keep you informed as the project develops and will endeavour to seek your feedback in relation to key project activities, where possible.
In May 2022, planning permission was granted for the Onshore Grid Infrastructure (OGI) to include landfall at Johnstown North, Arklow, underground cable route and substation at Avoca River Park. Separately, in June 2022, planning consent was achieved for the proposed Operations and Maintenance Facility at South Dock, Arklow.
We submitted a Maritime Area Consent (MAC) application to the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications in June 2022 seeking seabed exclusivity and expect a decision to be made later this year.
