Marine area geophysical surveys completed
The Sceirde Rocks Windfarm team has been consulting with the local fishing community and, between June and September, completed a geophysical survey of the local marine area to support project design and planning. This survey maps the seabed using equipment such as sonar and echo sounders.
Earlier, in June 2022, the Sceirde Rocks Windfarm developer applied for a Maritime Area Consent. This will enable Sceirde Rocks to compete in Irelands first Offshore Renewable Electricity Support Scheme which opens in 2023.
