Codling Wind Park – Survey Management and Site Characterisation Lead

Codling Wind Park represents one of the largest energy infrastructure investments in Ireland this decade and is set to become one of the largest offshore wind farms being developed in the Irish Sea.

Located approximately 13 km off the east coast of Ireland, at County Wicklow, Codling Wind Park is expected to consist of a number of wind turbine generators (the number and size are to be determined) linked by inter array cables to an offshore substation. An undersea export cable would carry the electrical energy to an onshore substation where it would connect to the Irish grid. Options for cable routes and the onshore and offshore substations are all being explored.
