Empowering the Future
Haven Offshore Array is a renewable energy development off the north coast of Ireland.
We are a forward-thinking Irish collective dedicated to the development of the offshore wind potential of our Island.
The renowned force of our westerly winds provides us with an effective renewable energy source and our aim is to capture this power and bring it home to you.
By supporting Haven Offshore Array, an Irish owned project, we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuel and create a clean, renewable and resilient energy resource to support Irish growth, in turn improving the environment and creating a better world for future generations.
Haven Offshore Array is preparing to investigate the feasibility of developing an Offshore Windfarm off the north coast of Donegal. To carry out the necessary survey work, Haven Offshore Array has submitted a Foreshore Investigatory Licence Application and supporting documentation to the Marine Planning and Foreshore Section of the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government. This licence, if granted, will last for 5 years.
About the Overall Project
The Haven Offshore Array Project contains a mixture of static and floating wind turbines, located off the north coast of county Donegal. The combined size of the initial sites inside 12NM is c.210km2. The combined size of future development sites, outside 12 NM, will be c.1,324 km2
This project is currently in the planning stage and is, therefore subject to change. The application for a Foreshore Investigatory Licence is not a development application. If granted, this licence will allow the project team to further refine the site choice and to carry out surveys considered necessary to properly assess the viability of the project across a spectrum of technical, environmental, social and economic factors.
The extent of the total area (“the investigation area”) within which surveys are to be conducted is c.523 km2. This area is appropriately described as the “investigation area” because it is the area within which Haven Offshore Array seeks to conduct all investigations appropriate for developing a wind farm proposal. The investigation area is not to be taken to be, or to represent, any actual wind farm site, and it must be understood that no structural development of any nature will take place at this stage of the Project.
