Western Star Floating Wind

Western Star will harness the tremendous wind potential of the Atlantic Ocean to help create a clean, sustainable future for everyone. The project will utilise innovative and cutting-edge technologies to incorporate floating offshore wind arrays to produce zero-carbon electricity. The development aims to help Ireland progress towards a green energy future with domestically sourced sustainable electricity delivering both environmental and economic benefits to the entire country and potentially beyond.

Simply Blue Energy is developing the Western Star project off the west coast of Clare, which will consist of a floating windfarm situated at least 35km offshore.

The proposed Western Star Project will be located at least 35km off the west coast of Co. Clare. The innovative floating technology proposed for this project will allow the turbines to be located far from shore and in waters over 100m deep where traditional fixed bottom turbine foundations would be uneconomical.
