Codling Extension application submitted

October112009

Codling Wind Park have lodged an application with the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for an extension to the consented Codling Wind Park Development.

The extension proposal comprises an additional 200 turbines (up to 1000MW) and is located approximately 13km off the east coast of Ireland in water depths of between 11 and 18 metres. The average output of the wind park, given wind speed variations on the site, would be sufficient to meet the annual electricity demand of at least 423,000 and possibly upwards of 706,000 average Irish households, and would have the ability to supply up to 38% of the government’s 2020 target.

Additional information on the project will be posted here shortly.
