Geophysical surveys underway at Codling Wind Park
Codling Wind Park is carrying out geophysical surveys at the 1.5 GW offshore wind project in Ireland.
According to the project’s Notice to Mariners, the surveys are scheduled to take place from 18 June to 10 August, weather permitting.
Vessel MV Relume will conduct the survey in water depths greater than 10 meters mLAT at the site located approximately 13 kilometers off the east coast of Wicklow.
The 1.5 GW Codling Wind Park is being developed by a joint venture partnership between Fred Olsen Renewables and EDF Renewables. It is spread across two sites, one of which, Codling 1, is consented.
In May 2020, the Irish government designated seven offshore wind projects as relevant and put them on a fast track through the new marine planning regime. One of the selected projects is Codling 1 and 2.
Subject to the consenting process, the developers anticipate that the wind farm will be constructed in the mid-2020s.
