Xellz sets out Rosslare windfarm plans

[ May 5, 2020   //   ]

Dutch-based project logistics consultancy Xellz has revealed details of how its 200,000sq m offshore wind site at the port of Rosslare will operate.

It has divided the land into zones and the entire area will be known as Rosslare Europort Business Park (EBP) where the company will establish an offshore wind supply base

The EBP area has been divided into five different zones (EBP01 to 5) alongside the new planned access road to the port. The land adjoins the port area, with direct access to the quay, and will be used for offshore supply base operations including pre-installation assembly and mobilisation.

Rosslare will serve the Irish and the Celtic Sea as well as the UK east coast and continental Europe where many offshore windfarms are planned.

Last July, the Irish government adopted a Climate Action Plan which specifies that renewables will provide 70% of electricity generation by 2030.
