Despite having one of the world's richest offshore wind resources, Ireland has struggled for decades to get turbines installed off its coasts, hampered by historic grid constraints and market design uncertainties.

But with 3.1 GW of projects moving forward under its new government-led market strategy and more momentum-building giga-scale auctions fast approaching, could the sector be set to finally start moving out of harbor?

Tomorrow we will publish the first of our new Beaufort editorial long-reads, where we speak exclusively to three of the developers awarded capacity in the flagship ORESS 1 auction in Ireland: Fred. Olsen Seawind, leading the 1.3 GW Codling Wind Park, RWE, at the helm of the 824 MW Dublin Array, and Statkraft, developing the 500 MW North Irish Sea Array.
