The ESB has launched a public consultation for their Helvick Head Offshore Wind project here (Closing date Monday 11th July 2022).
They provide digital ‘visualisations’ of how the turbines will look from various points along the Waterford coast.
We believe these visualisations are profoundly misleading and do not represent how the turbines will look if the project comes to fruition.
We have created a simple comparison to an active offshore wind farm in the UK below.
We encourage the public to notify their elected representatives of the consultation and to provide feedback to the ESB via the consultation here .
