An Irish owned business established to service the current and future needs of offshore wind farms has announced plans to create 50 jobs over the next 12 months.
Green Rebel say the new positions will include survey vessel crew, technicians and engineers, data scientists and surveyors, ecologists, aircraft mission specialists, project managers, office administrators, AI specialists, software developers and sales and marketing roles.
Green Rebel is headquartered in Crosshaven, Cork and plays a key role in the development of the offshore wind sector. The jobs will be spread across Green Rebel's Crosshaven, Cork Airport and Limerick offices.
Using their fleet of ships, aircraft and innovative technology, the team specialise in the collection, processing, and analysis of marine and metocean data. The company and its team helps accelerate green energy developments in the most sustainable and ecologically responsible manner possible. Plans for offshore wind farms are at an advanced stage with a number of potential fixed and floating operators examining sites along the Irish coastline.
Welcoming the news, Taoiseach Micheal Martin said, "I am delighted to join Green Rebel to announce the creation of 50 jobs over the next 12 months. Having seen the technology, met many of the team, and seen some of the Green Rebel data from what is normally our hidden marine environment, I am excited that this team are having such success and innovative plans are in place to drive our supply chain forward and help Ireland become a world leader in the development of offshore wind."
Founder of Green Rebel, Pearse Flynn said, "Ireland is on the cusp of a green revolution. With an abundance of offshore wind and water available to us, we can produce real fuel alternatives to help deliver Ireland's energy transition. Wind generated offshore will pay a significant role in providing energy security and helping Ireland become a net exporter of green, renewable energy. Wind generation will bring ashore electricity that can be used either directly into the grid, or feed exciting new green energy solutions provided by our sister company EI-H2, who are looking to produce green hydrogen at sites in County Cork and beyond."
