Fisheries & Mariners

Ocean Winds and Bord na Móna actively encourages the practice of co-existence with the mobile and static gear fishing sector through ongoing communication and information sharing.

For example, Ocean Winds’ fixed bottom Moray East offshore wind project (950MW) in Northern Scotland saw fishing activities occurring during the construction phase, these activities continue to occur now in and around our operational wind farm. Cabling is buried during the installation process and trials are undertaken with the fishing industry to demonstrate that trawling can take place.

We would envisage a similar approach being taken in Ireland albeit we will ultimately be guided by the conditions outlined in the Maritime Area Consent. The Celtic Horizon Offshore Wind project is a fixed bottom project.

Ocean Winds and Bord na Móna understands the importance of engagement at every stage of the proposed Celtic Horizon Offshore Wind development process. In 2022, the project team met with a number of fish producers organisations and carried out pier & quay visits to ensure local Fishers were kept informed of the project.

These visits, facilitated by our dedicated Fisheries Liaison Officer will continue into 2023 as we seek to consult on the proposed Celtic Horizon Offshore Wind project.
