Western Star Floating Wind

The Western Star Floating Wind Project, situated in the Atlantic Ocean, off west coast of Ireland, will utilise cutting-edge Floating Offshore Wind (FOW) technology to construct a wind farm which, upon completion, will have a total installed capacity of up to 1.35 GW. This is equivalent to powering over 1 million Irish homes.

The proposed project will help Ireland to improve energy security and decarbonize the energy supply while playing an important role in helping the Irish government meet its target of 2GW floating wind in development by 2030.

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. This allows the turbines to be placed further from shore (35-60km offshore) which will reduce visual impacts and gain access to better wind speeds.
