Generating the future of Offshore Wind Energy


Celtic Horizon is a proposed offshore wind development located in the Celtic Sea, off the coast of counties Waterford and Wexford. It is envisaged that the project could generate up to 700 Megawatts (MW) of clean renewable electricity, enough to power up to 657,000 Irish homes per annum. This will facilitate job creation and vastly reduce our reliance on imported oil and gas, while also helping Ireland become carbon neutral by 2050.

The Project

Celtic Horizon is being developed by Ocean Winds, an established global leader in the offshore renewable energy sector, and Bord na Móna, one of Ireland’s oldest semi-states working at the forefront of energy technology, to combine their efforts in leveraging Ireland’s offshore wind power resources.
