About the project

At its nearest point, Floating Cork will be over 22km off the south coast, lying entirely outside Ireland’s 12 nautical mile foreshore limit. The project has the potential to deliver enough renewable energy to help power over 850,000 households annually, helping Ireland to meet its binding target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 51% by 2030.
