Statkraft and CIP Collaborates to Develop 2.2GW of Offshore Wind in Ireland

This landmark partnership will see CIP acquire a 50% stake in Statkraft’s offshore wind portfolio in Ireland. The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
The scope of the partnership includes the three phases of the North Irish Sea Array, or NISA, and the Bore Array. The proposed location for NISA is off the coast of counties Dublin, Louth, and Meath, while the site of the Bore Array has been proposed for the Celtic Sea.
Developing and building these projects is expected to require an investment of more than €4 billion by Statkraft and CIP by 2030.
“The need for energy security and decarbonisation has never been as important, or urgent, as it is today. Ireland has a wealth of renewable energy resources right on its doorstep – energy that has largely remained untapped. Statkraft and CIP will now work together to bring that clean, green power to the Irish people,” said David Flood, Head of Offshore Wind at Statkraft.
Nischal Agarwal, Partner in CIP, said: “We are very pleased to be entering the Irish offshore market and look forward to developing these exciting projects together with Statkraft. In combining CIP’s industrial background and international experience within offshore wind with Statkraft’s experience of Irish renewables, the partnership will enable the provision of renewable power to Irish homes and businesses and contribute to reaching the government’s ambitious decarbonisation targets.”
