Olympic Offshore Wind

UK
Project Status Pending

The Olympic Offshore Wind project will form a gateway to commercial offshore wind farms in Northern Ireland. It will provide a clean, sustainable future for everyone in the region with innovative sub-structures and will support a diverse route to market.

This project will utilise innovative and cutting-edge offshore wind technologies to produce zero-carbon electricity. The development aims to help Northern Ireland and UK to progress towards a net-zero future.

Olympic is a Offshore Wind project, with a combined capacity of up to 1.3GW, located offshore County Down in Northern Ireland. The project is in planning stage and it is aiming to secure future Contracts for Difference (the government’s main mechanism for supporting low-carbon electricity generation) which will now take place on annual basis.

The Olympic Offshore Wind will have an option to be developed in stages in-line with a stepping-stone concept that is following the philosophy that Simply Blue Group is using in the Celtic Sea. This project will provide an opportunity for the local supply chain to set up and prepare for commercial-scale opportunities offshore Northern Ireland. This will allow NI to maximise the financial benefit of its strong offshore wind resource and generate long-term jobs for its local communities while contributing to the UK government’s target of 1GW of operational offshore wind by 2030.
