Codling Wind Park

generating a greener Ireland

Welcome to Codling Wind Park

Codling Wind Park is a 1,300 MW offshore wind farm proposed to be developed in the Irish Sea, in an area called the Codling Bank, approximately 13-22 kilometres off the County Wicklow coast, between Greystones and Wicklow Town.

The project is a 50/50 joint venture between Fred. Olsen Seawind and EDF Renewables.  Both companies are leading developers, owners and operators of renewable energy assets, with many years of global experience in the renewable energy and offshore wind sector.

With the potential to provide power to over 1 million Irish homes every year, Codling Wind Park is the largest Phase One offshore renewable energy project in Ireland, essential to achieve our national renewable energy and climate action targets.
