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.
