A public consultation has been launched for the scoping report phase of the Western Star Floating Wind Project.
The venture, by Cork based company, Simply Blue, is expected to have a capacity of approximately 1.35 gigawatts (gw); providing the equivalent potential power for over 1 million homes.

A virtual exhibition of the project will also run online until May 26th.
