Generating the future of offshore wind energy


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

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, and Bord na Móna, an iconic semi-state Irish company leading Ireland towards a climate neutral future, with the experience of supporting Ireland’s energy security since 1934.
