Singapore-Based Enterprize To Build $10bn Wind Farm Off Irish Coast

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Irish Times.

This is the first paragraph.

A Singapore-based offshore wind developer has signed an agreement to build a huge $10 billion (€8.88 billion) wind farm off the coast of Ireland to power a green hydrogen facility.

This is certainly a large investment.

  • The windfarm will have a capacity of 4 GW.
  • Hydrogen will be produced for the Irish market and some will be converted to ammonia for export.
  • The hydrogen will be produced at the Green Marlin hydrogen facility at Bantry Bay.
  • I’ve not heard of Enterprize before, but the company  is also developing a 3.4 gigawatt offshore wind farm in Vietnam and is looking at Brazil.

Enterprize Energy are obviously very ambitious.

This article on Fuel Cell Works, which is entitled Zenith Energy And EI-H2 Announce Joint Venture For Green Facility At Bantry Bay, gives more details of the Green Marlin project.

Conclusion

There are some big companies investing billions of pounds, dollars and euros in hydrogen.

  1. Enterprize was founded and run by Ian Hatton a Geologist whose been around the oil industry for some time. Judging by what you said about Newmarket and horses I guess you’d have an affinity with him since he breeds and races a number of them.
    You’d think with examples like Bantry Bay that renewables in the West of Ireland, especially wind would be going great guns, but just in the last few days Equinor have announced that they are withdrawing from a number projects including the wind farm in the approaches to the Shannon Estuary that would feed the Moneypoint Power Station when it ceases coal fired generation in 2025. Their reason, they don’t like the regulatory environment.
