Plans to develop an offshore wind energy hub in Cork Harbour have been shelved as Doyle Shipping Group has pulled out of the scheme.

As reported on just three months ago, the 15-hectare Cork Dockyard facility at Rushbrooke had been earmarked for redevelopment as an infrastructure hub for offshore renewable energy (ORE) projects.

But according to the Irish Examiner on Wednesday (8 May), the family-owned Doyle Shipping Group has withdrawn from any involvement in ORE.

And the Business Post says the Port of Cork has now been left with a €70 million funding gap for its development plans.

Planning permission for what would have been the Cork Dockyard Rejuvenation Project expires at the end of this year, piling further pressure on the Port of Cork Company as it seeks a commercial partner for the necessary investment.

Enterprise Ireland will host the third Enterprise Ireland Offshore Wind Forum in Croke Park next Tuesday (28 November), featuring an address from Simon Coveney TD, Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment.

This one-day knowledge and networking event will convene the Irish offshore wind supply chain with industry stakeholders from across the Irish, UK and global offshore wind markets.

The forum will include updates on both the Irish and UK offshore wind markets, with key contributions from project developers and industry experts.

It will assess the timelines, opportunities and challenges facing the offshore wind industry and will examine how the supply chain can help facilitate continued growth.

While the main focus is on Ireland and the UK, attendees will also receive updates from European markets, including France, Germany and Italy.

Attendees will also hear from EirGrid on their supply chain support needs, and the forum will take a look at the Irish technology and innovation that is working to advance floating offshore wind.

See the full forum agenda and register to attend via the Enterprise Ireland website.
