Phase 2 of Arklow Bank Wind Park will be located on and around the Arklow Bank, approximately 6 to 13 km from the shore. The foreshore lease area for the wind farm covers an area of seabed approximately 27 km long and 2.5 km wide. We are exploring a number of different turbine models and layouts with a maximum number of 76 turbines and a maximum tip height of 197m. An indicative turbine layout is shown in Figure 1.
Up to two offshore substation platforms will be installed and two subsea cables will be laid in the seabed to connect the wind farm to the shore.
