Dong, Centrica quit Irish Sea Zone

Partners Dong and Centrica have pulled out of the 4.2GW UK offshore wind Irish Sea zone.

A statement from Centrica said: “The decision to stop development comes as a result of an assessment of the zone, which has confirmed challenging ground conditions that make the project economically unviable with current technology.”

The two were looking to develop the Round 3 zone via a 50/50 joint venture called Celtic Array.
