Generating the future of offshore wind energy

advancing the green transition

Réalt na Mara is a proposed offshore wind development located in the Irish Sea, off the coast of counties Dublin and Wicklow. It is envisaged that the project could generate up to 1.6 Gigawatts (GW) of clean renewable electricity, enough to power up to 1.5 million 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

Ocean Winds is proposing the development of an offshore wind farm located in the Irish Sea, off the coast of counties Dublin and Wicklow. The proposed wind farm array study area is located approximately 12km off the coast of Dublin and Wicklow.

The proposed offshore wind development will be known as Réalt na Mara, and it is envisaged that the project could generate up to 1.6 Gigawatts (GW) of clean renewable electricity, enough to power 1.5 million Irish homes. The proposed development will also facilitate job creation, vastly reduce our reliance on imported oil and gas, and increase our security of electricity supply while helping Ireland become carbon neutral by 2050. Based on current project timelines it is envisaged that the project would be in commercial operation by 2030, with a lifespan of 25 to 30 years.

Réalt na Mara is being developed by Ocean Winds, an established global leader in the offshore renewable energy sector who has international expertise and a strong track record in developing similar projects in Scotland, France, Portugal, Belgium, Poland, U.S. and Korea.

Who we are

Ocean Winds

Ocean Winds (OW) is the result of a joint venture by EDP Renewables (EDPR) and ENGIE, created in 2020. Both companies share the vision in which renewables, particularly offshore wind, play a key role in the global energy transition. That is why they created a 50-50 joint venture for offshore wind.
