Western Star will harness the tremendous wind potential of the Atlantic Ocean to help create a clean, sustainable future for everyone. The project will utilise innovative and cutting-edge floating offshore wind technology 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.

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 in waters approximately 110m deep.

Project Goals


This project will help to reduce Ireland’s dependence on foreign fossil fuel imports, where a large portion of our current electricity production comes from.


Offshore wind energy is a clean, sustainable and renewable energy source which will help Ireland reach its targets on greenhouse gas emissions and aid in the fight against climate change.


We are dedicated to developing sustainable and transformative marine projects working with the oceans and enabling communities to benefit from blue growth.
