The second offshore wind project for Northern Ireland has been announced by Simply Blue Group, a major Irish developer of the blue economy in floating offshore wind, wave energy, and low impact aquaculture. The group's earlier this year announced "Nomadic Offshore Wind" project and the "Olympic Offshore Wind" project are related projects. Off the coast of County Down in Northern Ireland, Olympic Offshore Wind will have a combined capacity of up to 1.3GW.

The Olympic Offshore Wind project will have an option to be developed in stages in-line with a stepping-stone concept that Simply Blue Group is using on other projects. This project will provide an opportunity for the local supply chain to set up and prepare for commercial scale opportunities offshore in Northern Ireland.

Sam McCloskey, Northern Ireland Adviser at Simply Blue Group said: “We are delighted to add another offshore wind project to our Northern Ireland portfolio, as we believe the offshore environment off the coast of Northern Ireland offers huge potential to blue economy developers such as ourselves.”

Welcoming the Olympic Offshore Wind project, Steven Agnew, Head of Renewable NI, said “Offshore wind will play a crucial role in helping Northern Ireland to achieve a zero-carbon electricity system. RenewableNI is excited by the scale of the opportunity the Olympic project represents, adding to a growing portfolio of offshore developments that will bring jobs and investment as well as deliver low-cost electricity and increased energy security. It is vital that government matches the ambition of the Simply Blue Group and puts in place the consenting regime needed to deliver a thriving offshore renewables industry.”
