Dublin Array is an offshore wind farm that is being developed on the Kish and Bray Banks in the Irish Sea, 10 km off the nearest coast of Dublin and Wicklow. From the shore, the turbines will appear to be the height of an adult's thumbnail when viewed at arm's length.
Ireland has one of the best wind resources in the world. By harnessing this resource, we can create jobs, help to combat climate change and increase Ireland's security of energy supply.
With a potential installed capacity of at least 520 MW, the Dublin Array will generate enough green electricity to meet the demands of over half a million homes. This means a large proportion of the electricity needed by the city of Dublin would be supplied by Dublin Array.
Dublin Array will provide a very significant economic stimulus to Ireland which will result in foreign investment, sustainable job creation and a new source of long term revenue for the State from foreshore rent, income tax and corporation tax.
Dublin Array is being developed by Saorgus Energy Ltd, an independent Irish-owned company with over 20 years' experience in all aspects of wind energy.
