Projects

The Codling Wind Park Project

The Codling Wind Park is a planned offshore wind farm that will represent one of the largest energy infrastructure investments in Ireland this decade – and one of the largest offshore wind developments in the whole of Europe.

The project is expected to contribute significantly to Ireland's Climate Action Plan targets on 5 GW offshore wind by 2030 as it will reduce Irelands carbons emissions with almost two million tonnes annually and help reduce Ireland’s reliance on imported fossil fuel-based energy.

The Codling Wind Park will consist of up to 100 offshore wind turbines generating enough locally produced renewable electricity to power up to 1.2 million homes annually – or 70% of all Irish homes. Moreover, The Codling Wind Park is expected to create 1,000 jobs during construction.

Codling Holdings is a 50/50 joint venture partnership between Fred. Olsen Seawind Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fred. Olsen Seawind ASA, and a subsidiary of EDF Energy Renewables Limited.

The project is planned to participate in the upcoming ORESS CfD Auction during 2022 and is on track for reaching FID in 2024 and COD in 2028.

Muir Mhòr Offshore Wind Farm

Muir Mhòr Offshore Wind Farm brings together decades of Scottish industry expertise to develop a highly innovative renewable energy project that will lead the energy transition. The site’s deep water conditions are well-suited to floating turbine technology, and its location and 798MW+ size allow for efficient project delivery and focus on supply chain development.

Having been awarded seabed rights in the January 2022 Scotwind auction, the project is at an early stage of development. Ecological and environmental survey work is currently underway in collaboration with other developers, which will inform our approach to the project. The project is awaiting the final grid connection location, and intends to work closely with communities on the onshore aspects of our proposal from an early stage.

Consultation with the community on an initial proposal began in the second half of 2023.

The project that will put people first, and collaborate with industry, communities and the supply chain to deliver tangible benefits for the local and national economy.

The Norwegian projects

Utsira Nord is developed to realise the enormous potential that offshore wind represents for Norway's green energy future. It aims to develop the Norwegian supply chain for the expected large-scale build-out of offshore wind in Europe.

The Norwegian projects are long-term cooperation agreements between Fred. Olsen Seawind and Hafslund Eco AS to apply for licenses to develop offshore wind projects in areas appointed by the Norwegian government. 

The preparation for the tender started in Q1 2022, and the project is expected to reach FID in 2025-2027 and COD in 2029-2030.
