The public consultation has begun on the project.
German energy company RWE have teamed up with Irish company Saorgus to initiate plans to build a wind farm on the Kish and Bray Banks, 10km from the coast.
The wind farm would cost over €1 billion, with the turbines reaching over 300 metres in height and will generate enough electricity for over 600,000 homes. Though the developers have not completed a planning application, they have started the public consultation.
It is hoped that the project will be operating by 2026.
You can visit a virtual exhibition on the project here.
