Wicklow Port has been chosen as the new base for Codling Wind Park’s Operations and Maintenance.

The new facility will provide offices, warehousing and vessel berthing facilities, as well as an operations control centre. 

The port has been chosen following a detailed technical study of potential port options along the east coast, and engagement with relevant port authorities and stakeholders.

The new base will provide a major economic boost to the area, with significant investment to be made in the development of the port facilities. 

A total of 115 jobs are anticipated during the construction and operational phases combined. The new facility will see the creation of 75 new, long-term, local jobs in a variety of maintenance, technician, engineering, administration, and other roles. Additional potential benefits include training, retraining and apprenticeship opportunities in the local area. There will also be opportunities for local businesses to support the planning, design, construction, and ongoing operation of the new base.
Construction of the new base, which could get underway in early 2025, will see the creation of an additional 40 temporary jobs.
