Who we are

Obton are working with Shannon Energy to deliver more than 500 MWp of renewable energy in Ireland in the next five years.

Our goal is to assemble a diverse portfolio of projects that will provide a supply of solar-generated electricity for many years to come.

We recently reached an important milestone when we submitted our first 11 projects for qualification in the Government of Ireland’s Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS).

This will provide a total of 105 MWp of solar energy.

Solar Park Projects

Obton and Shannon Energy has submitted 11 Solar Park Projects for the first RESS (Renewable Energy Support Scheme) Auction to be held in July 2020. Construction is planned to begin in Q1 2021.

The projects are situated in eight counties throughout Ireland, with sites located in Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Longford, Galway, Offaly, Meath and Tipperary.  

The combined 105 MW of power generated will be enough to fulfil the yearly energy requirements of up to 20,000 households.

It is expected that more than 200 jobs will be created in the construction of the solar photovoltaic (PV) technology on approximately 400 acres.
