EDF Renewables continues to invest in Ireland by acquiring Wexford SolarLimited which includes eight solar projects with around 100 MW of capacity across the country. The company has big ambitions to develop its already growing portfolio in Ireland, having recently bought 50% of the Codling offshore wind farm, partnering with Fred Olsen, to develop and build the project, and is opening a new bigger office in Dublin to accommodate this.

Four of the Wexford Solar projects are consented and have been successful in the recent RESS 1 auction. These include Blusheens (11.5MW), Coolroe (7.4 MW)and Curraghmartin (5.7 MW) which are all in County Wexford plus Stamullen (5.8MW) in County Meath. EDF Renewables plans to build these projects in 2021.

Four other projects are in the development phase and these are Ballycarren (6MW) in County Wexford, Willville (5.7 MW) in County Louth, Johnstown (15 MW) in County Carlow and Athlone (45MW) in County Roscommon.

The new Dublin office will be home to our Irish Head of Development Kevin Daly and a team of six others but it is expected this will quickly grow as well. Currently all employees are working from home due to COVID-19.
