ESB and Rosslare Europort Join Forces On Offshore Wind Projects

ESB and Iarnród Éireann have signed a joint Memorandum of Understanding  to cooperate on the organisations’ respective development plans to support offshore wind projects in the Celtic and Irish Seas.

With ESB developing a portfolio of offshore wind farms, and Rosslare Europort progressing plans to establish the port as Ireland’s offshore renewables hub, the joint initiative seeks to take advantage of their respective fields of expertise and knowledge.  

The MOU establishes a common goal of maximising the opportunities of each parties’ respective development plans.

While non-exclusive in nature, the agreement sets out the two organisations’ intention to work together with the aim of developing a port solution capable of supporting ESB’s offshore developments in Ireland, in line with the country’s climate action targets and ESB’s Net Zero by 2040 strategy.

To deliver its vision for ORE, Rosslare Europort plans significant works, including:

-    ORE purpose-built quay and berth

-    ORE quayside storage and pre-construction / up to 50 acres in area

-    Navigable channel dredged down to a minimum of 9-11 metres depth

-    Management Control Centre & management offices and facilities for Operations and Maintenance
