Offshore Design Engineering Ltd (ODE) has been selected as Owner’s Engineer for the
Codling wind farm, set to become one of the largest offshore wind farms in Ireland.

Initially planned as two separate wind farms, the now-combined
Codling wind farm is expected to span an area of around 125km2 approximately 13-22 kilometres off the County Wicklow coast, between Greystones and Wicklow Town. The project is anticipated to have an installed capacity of 900-1500MW and use up to 140 wind turbine generators (WTG). A planning application is expected to be submitted in the first half of 2022. It is being developed by Codling Wind Park Ltd (CWPL), a 50/50 joint venture between Fred. Olsen Renewables and EDF Renewables.

As Owner’s Engineer, ODE will be overseeing the concept and feasibility development of the foundations, onshore and offshore substation, and array cables for
Codling. ODE will also be providing a wider range of technical expertise as necessary in support of the project.

Rob Sheldon, Engineering Manager at Codling Wind Park Ltd said, “We are delighted to be working with ODE as Owner’s Engineer. The breadth and depth of their offshore wind experience and technical expertise will be critical support for Codling Wind Park as it progresses to the next phase in the development.”


David Robertson, ODE’s Director & Head of Renewables, commented, “The achievement of this contract is testament to the engineering knowledge and capabilities of the ODE Renewables team. We are looking forward to entering the Irish offshore wind market for the first time, particularly on such a milestone project as Codling Wind Park.”
