Irish company Simply Blue Group has unveiled a new 1.3 GW offshore wind project, located off the coast of County Down, in Northern Ireland (United Kingdom).

Two projects are currently under development: the Emerald floating wind project in the Celtic Sea with Shell, and the Blue Gem Wind portfolio of floating wind projects in the Welsh waters with TotalEnergies.

Wind accounts for 28% of the United Kingdom's installed capacity, with 28.7 GW (2021). Nearly 7 GW of wind projects are currently under construction and 89 GW are under development.
