A landmark day for Rosslare. Europort Management has announced plans to establish the port, its hinterland and the southeast region as Ireland’s Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Hub, with the potential to create up to 2,000 jobs.
The Offshore Renewable Energy hub plan represents an investment estimated at €200 million, and will be aligned with existing developments such as:
Rosslare Europort Masterplan, including port digitalisation: These works will reflect its status as Ireland’s Gateway to Europe and will include new freight and passenger facilities, storage, export and import facilities, and berth extension. Matching the port’s physical transformation, a digitalisation of systems and operations is also planned which will deliver a better, more effective and more efficient Port.
Office of Public Works Project T7, to develop a permanent Border Control Post within the port, to provide the facilities and systems for all aspects of Border Control.
New TII N25 Rosslare Europort Access Road will ensure a better experience for port users and enhance the quality of life for those living and working in the area by taking trucks out of the village and improving access and connectivity to the port.
In total, these developments and the ORE Hub plan will see a total of €350 million invested in the port and its environs.
