Rosslare Europort is where the Dutch Ambassador Adriaan Palm visited on Friday to see for himself plans that are being put in place for offshore wind energy as well as gauging the Wexford ferryport's viability in terms of handling imports and exports post-Brexit.

Particularly of interest to Ambassador Palm, writes Wexford People, is the work being undertaken by Dutch company Xellz, who have invested a significant amount of money in Rosslare in recent times in a bid to create an 'offshore wind energy hub' there.

'Basically I'm visiting today because I want to see with my own eyes what the prospects are for developing offshore wind energy here in Ireland,' he said. 'Obviously there's a big focus now on sustainability and there are new climate targets to be reached. We have to do more on these issues. I know there are very exciting plans for Rosslare and I came here because I wanted to hear them for myself. We want to co-operate and learn from each other on the topic of climate change and sustainable energy.'

The visit follows that of the Irish minister of State, Hildegarde Naughton with responsibility for international and road travel and logistics.
