Codling Wind Park is set to be one of the largest offshore wind projects in Ireland and is located in the Irish Sea, approximately 13-22 kilometres off the east coast of Ireland in County Wicklow. With a potential capacity of up to 1,500 megawatts, it is being developed as a 50/50 joint venture project between Fred. Olsen Renewables and EDF Renewables.
TH will supply project personnel throughout the lifecycle of the project including design, procurement, construction, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance.
Subject to all necessary permits and consents being received, Codling Wind Park could begin construction in 2024/25, and is expected to take two to three years to complete.
Over the last 12 years Taylor Hopkinson has built out project teams across the lifecycle of more than 75 offshore wind farms globally from pre-consent through to operations, at all levels across office, site, fabrication, and offshore roles.
TH has been supporting Codling Wind Park over the last 12 months and has supplied more than 20 key positions to the project to date which is made up of Irish nationals and experienced offshore wind professionals from across Europe.
Neil Brown, Head of Offshore Wind Contract at Taylor Hopkinson said,
In the last 12 months we have played a critical role in building out the core structure of the Codling Wind Park team and delighted we can continue our strong working relationship as the project develops through to Commercial Operation, expected around 2027. We have been extremely active in the Irish renewable energy market for the last 10 years, so we are looking forward to using our existing network in Ireland and our extensive offshore wind network across Europe.

About the Codling Wind Park project
Codling Wind Park is a proposed offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea, set in an area called Codling Bank, approximately 13-22 kilometres off the County Wicklow coast, between Greystones and Wicklow Town.
Codling Wind Park is a 50:50 joint venture between EDF Renewables and Fred. Olsen Renewables.
With an expected capacity of up to 1,500 megawatts (MW), it has the potential to supply the equivalent of up to 1.2 million Irish homes – 70% of all Irish households – with low-carbon, locally-produced, low-cost electricity, and to save almost 2 million tonnes of carbon emissions every year.
Representing one of the largest energy infrastructure investments in Ireland this decade, the project will deliver substantial benefits to the regional and national economy, including more than 1,000 construction jobs and around 70 long-term, locally based jobs.
Subject to all necessary permits and consents being received, Codling Wind Park could begin construction in 2024/25. Construction is expected to take two to three years to complete.
