Shell New Energies,Simply Blue Energy
Date: 2021-01-27
Irish renewable energy developer Simply Blue Energy reports Shell New Energies has signed an agreement to acquire a 51 pct share of their Simply Blue Energy Kinsale venture, which was set up to develop the Emerald Project, a floating wind farm in the Irish Celtic Sea.

The Joint Venture will be operated by Simply Blue Energy supported by Shell floating wind experts, with the project office based in the Cork City Docklands rejuvenation area.

The project is in the early stages and aims to exploit the vast floating wind potential in the Irish part of the Celtic Sea. 300MW of installed capacity is planned initially, with the potential to scale-up to a total installed capacity of 1GW. This is equivalent to powering 800,000 Irish homes.
