The Emerald Project



The Emerald floating offshore wind farm will harness the enormous wind potential of the Celtic Sea to help create a clean, sustainable future for everyone. The project aims to help Ireland towards a green energy future with domestically sourced sustainable electricity delivering both environmental and economic benefits to the entire country and potentially beyond.

The Emerald project will be off the south coast of Cork, in the vicinity of the Kinsale gas field, which has been decommissioned. Emerald envisions the transformation of the maritime landscape from fossil fuel production to a clean renewable energy source.
