Bord Gáis Energy Teams Up With Corio Generation

Construction News Image
Bord Gáis Energy and Corio Generation have partnered to explore opportunities to supply Ireland's electricity market with green electricity from offshore wind.

The agreement represents Bord Gáis Energy's entry into the offshore wind arena and will play an important role in its ongoing commitment to expand its renewable energy portfolio. Corio, a leading global offshore wind developer with a global pipeline of more than 30 GW, is currently developing the 450 MW Sceirde Rocks wind farm off the west coast of Ireland.

The Bord Gáis Energy/Corio partnership aligns with the government’s strategy to develop Ireland’s significant offshore wind resource, which will contribute to Ireland’s climate action targets and maximise the economic impact of future renewable energy use, while also contributing to security of supply and delivering balanced regional economic development.

Dave Kirwan, Managing Director, Bord Gáis Energy said: "At Bord Gáis Energy, we believe all energy can be green energy and that this can also improve Ireland’s energy security. This significant partnership with Corio will combine our power generation and route to market expertise, the financial backing of Centrica, and Corio Generation’s global experience in the development of offshore wind projects.

"For Bord Gáis Energy, today’s announcement is part of our wider strategic objective to energise a greener, fairer future in Ireland, offering end-to-end green energy solutions required for the transition to net zero."

Jonathan Cole, CEO of Corio Generation, said: "With its extensive coastline, abundant natural resources, and a clear and ambitious government strategy, Ireland is exceptionally well-placed to expand its offshore wind capabilities and enjoy the many benefits this could bring, from greener and more reliable energy to widespread economic investment and community gain.

"By combining Corio's significant development expertise and Bord Gais’ outstanding track record as a market leader in Ireland’s energy sector, we have established a partnership that is ready to play a major role in Ireland’s energy transition. I am delighted to announce this partnership and look forward to the challenges, opportunities and many successes that lie ahead."
