Belgian wind farm developer Parkwind is to become a strategic partner in the Oriel Wind Farm, to be built 22 kilometres off the coast of Co Louth.

The Oriel Wind Farm will be the country’s biggest renewable energy plant when it is finished in three years’ time, and will provide power to 250,000 homes. It will be the first fully operational commercial wind farm in Irish waters and will deliver 330MW of clean energy form 55 turbines.

Parkwind already operates three offshore wind farms in the North Sea. It plans to have more than 1000MW of offshore wind production capacity operating by 2020.

Brian Britton, founder and board member of Oriel Wind Farm states: “In our search for a strategic partner, several international offshore wind players were interested in acquiring a stake in Oriel Wind Farm. Our choice for Parkwind is driven by the strong track record and values the company Parkwind stands for. We believe that Parkwind can bring in the necessary knowledge and pioneering spirit to bring this project to a successful end.”
