Public to have their say on €2.5bn wind farm off Louth/Meath/Dublin coast

Front Page

The company behind the proposed Braymore Wind Park which will see an investment of up to 2.5 billion Euros in a project that will supply enough electricity to power a million homes, is encouraging members of the public to engage with them during a three week public consultation process. 

Public consultation meetings on the project will take place at Clogherhead Community Centre on May 24, Balbriggan Community Centre on May 25, both running from 2pm to 8pm and at the Village Hotel, Bettystown on 31 May from 4pm to 6 pm.

Members of the project team will also host an online information session on 1 June from 7-8pm.

SSE Renewables has secured a Foreshore Licence to facilitate surveys of the seabed at the site of the proposed Braymore Wind Park, between Dunany Point in County Louth and Braymore Point in County Dublin, which will generate enough electricity to power over a million homes while offsetting over 1 billion kgs of carbon emissions. 

Braymore Wind Park is comprised of three major components: offshore infrastructure; onshore grid infrastructure and operations and maintenance facility.

Leading renewable energy developers, owner and operator SSE Renewables, is proposing capital investment of up to €2.5 billion to develop Braymore Wind Park.  There will be significant employment opportunities to support the day-to-day running of the windfarm.  These jobs will be sustained over the operational life of the windfarm. There will also be a multi-million Euro Community Benefit Fund.

Representatives from SSE Renewables will be on-hand to discuss project proposals and answer questions from the public on the proposed wind farm. The in-person exhibitions and online webinar will offer members of the community a complete overview of the project. A full digital brochure and feedback form as well as details of how to register for the webinar are available via www.sserenewables.com/braymorewindpark 

As part of the public consultation process, the SSE Renewables stakeholder engagement team will work with local communities and stakeholders to gather and record feedback and local information that will inform the project. 

Martin Sweeney, Lead Project Manager for SSE Renewables said: “We look forward to engaging in-person with communities in County Dublin, Louth and Meath on the proposed Braymore Wind Park. It is really important that local stakeholders get an opportunity to engage directly and share their views on the projects ahead of us submitting consent applications to the Maritime Area Regulatory Authority (MARA) and An Bord Pleanála in 2023 and 2024 which will allow the projects to proceed. 

“Our dedicated project team, website, in-person and virtual events will offer a variety of ways for stakeholders to learn more about the project and to arrange meetings with the project team, and to provide feedback to us.”
