Simply Blue Energy Western Star

Overview

Western
Star

Western Star will harness the tremendous wind and wave potential of the Atlantic Ocean to help create a clean, sustainable future for everyone. The project will utilise innovative and cutting-edge technologies to incorporate both floating offshore wind and wave energy conversion arrays to produce zero-carbon electricity. The development aims to help Ireland progress towards a green energy future with domestically sourced sustainable electricity delivering both environmental and economic benefits to the entire country and potentially beyond.

Simply Blue Energy is developing the Western Star project off the west coast of Clare, which will consist of a floating windfarm situated at least 35km offshore, co-developed with a wave energy conversion array, approximately 4km from the coast.
