Atkins has been involved in Wind Energy in Ireland since 2000 as environmental and engineering consultants for clients in Ireland and Europe. Our capabilities cover the full lifecycle from conception to commissioning including scheme identification, through design and planning, to construction and beyond.
We are a first choice partner of contractors, government agencies, and local authorities. We can offer a total solution to large projects where a multidiscipline team is required or a more limited involvement at a single stage of a project i.e. pre-planning only. Atkins’ engineering resource facilitates a multidisciplinary team to support Wind Generation projects at any stage through the project life cycle.
Atkins has the full range of in-house skills to carry out all aspects of renewable energy consent applications, and can manage the entire consents process from the development of a consultation strategy, to the undertaking of an Environmental Impact Assessment, through to the ratification of consent conditions. Alternatively, we can offer discrete studies to complement the skills of a developer’s existing project team, such as ecological and noise surveys, noise propagation modelling, or landscape and visual impact assessments.
