Offshore windfarm plan for Clogherhead  

Credit:  Hubert Murphy | Drogheda Independent | February 3 2018 | www.independent.ie ~~

Investigation works are to take place off the Clogherhead coast to see if the area is suitable for an offshore windfarm.

Hibernian Wind Power are behind the proposed project, which is located 1km from the proposed Oriel windfarm.

It is approximately 6km from the shoreline and bounds the Dundalk Bay shellfish waters.

It is expected that the works will take up to two years to complete and centres on the impact to the waters – if any – by such a project.

It is envisaged that the licence project won’t impact on fishing or recreational pursuits in Clogherhead.

The works include finalising offshore foundation locations and the optimum route for submarine electricity cables.

It is known that a number of shipwrecks are within or close to the site and the nearest shipping lanes are 0.7km from the northern boundary of the site.

A copy of the licence application can be seen in both Clogherhead and Drogheda Garda Stations from this week for 21 days and on the following link: http://www.housing.gov.ie/planning/foreshore/applications/hibernian-wind-power-clogher-head.
