Survey Complete On Phase 2 Of Arklow Wind Bank Wind Park

SSE Renewables, in partnership with Green Rebel, has completed a survey of the seabed off the east coast of Ireland, to collect high resolution geophysical data at the proposed 800MW Arklow Bank Wind Park Phase 2 Wind Park site.

Green Rebel, a Cork based offshore survey service company, was awarded the tender following a competitive process.

The completion of the survey is a key milestone for the Arklow Bank Wind Park Phase 2 project and will help progress the ongoing design development of the project.

The data collected from the survey will inform important engineering decisions and help to de-risk the project which will make a significant contribution to Ireland’s climate action target of 7GW of offshore wind by 2030.

While the Arklow Bank Wind Park Phase 2 is a challenging site to survey due to the metocean conditions in this area of the Irish Sea, Green Rebel successfully managed to acquire almost 2000km of data supported by its vessels, the Roman Rebel and the Lady Kathleen (a specialist nearshore survey vessel).
