Delivering Power

Watch our animation to find out how our wind farm will work to deliver clean electricity to our national grid.

Location And layout

Codling Wind Park will be located approximately 13 – 22 kilometres off the coast of County Wicklow, between Greystones and Wicklow Town. The overall size of the array site is 125 km2.

Previously it had been had thought around 100 turbines would need to be constructed but, in April 2024, the project confirmed a maximum of 75 and a minimum of 60 turbines would now be required. 

Although this is a significant reduction in wind turbines, the development will still generate 1,300 megawatts (MW) of clean electricity, enough to power over one million Irish homes.

Our Consents Manager, Lis Royle, explains how the team have developed the design of the project, putting environment and people at the forefront.


Transmitting electricity from Codling Wind Park into the national grid requires a new onshore substation. This 220kv substation will be built on a site adjacent to Pigeon House Harbour, on the west side of the Poolbeg peninsula. The substation will prepare the electricity to the appropriate specifications for delivery to EirGrid’s substation at Poolbeg.

Our Onshore Consents Manager Fiona Campbell describes the significance of the location of our onshore substation and the influence the heritage of the area had on the design process.
