Once the relevant consents are obtained for the Torr Head development, our intention is to deploy turbines which will not be visible above the surface of the water. The proposed tidal energy array will have the capacity to generate 100MW of electricity. The project is expected to be completed by 2020.

Construction of the tidal energy array, which will be fully submerged, will only proceed once the appropriate consents and licences are in place. This includes –
- A Marine Licence for the offshore elements, submitted to the Department of Environment (DoE) Marine Division
- Article 39 Consent, submitted to the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI)
- Onshore planning permission which will be submitted to the DOE Planning Service.
An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has been completed for each element of the project including the production of an accompanying Environmental Statement (ES).This document is available to view in our downloads section.
