Ionic Passes 1.5GW O/E Milestone in Ireland

Ionic Consulting are delighted to confirm that the next significant milestone in their renewable energy journey has been passed!

Earlier this summer, with the completion of the 90MW Cordal windfarm for our clients Cubico and Element Power, our company passed the 1.5GW (1500MW) of completed onshore windfarm projects as full-service owner’s engineer. This is a remarkable achievement for our company and represents in excess of 700 wind turbines across 89 individual projects, both big and small, with an estimated capital investment by our family of clients of almost €2.5bn.

As predicted the achievement of the latest 500MW of completed projects illustrates the growth in the scale of the market here in Ireland as it occurred in about 16 months – compared to 9 years for the first 500MW batch.

A clearly upbeat Managing Director Ken Boyne commented;

There are so many things to celebrate in passing this milestone but the one that gives me the most pride is the fact that our clients continue to trust us to work alongside them to deliver these projects. It is also rewarding for me to see the Ionic staff continue to rise to the challenges that the increasingly complex project delivery environment presents to us. This puts Ionic in an incredibly strong position to adapt and thrive in the rapidly changing renewable energy markets both in Ireland and overseas.

The journey to the next milestone of 2GW will be an interesting one for Ionic with some exciting announcements to follow in the coming months.
