Green Rebel, a business which services the future needs of offshore wind farms, said it plans to create 50 jobs over the next year at its Cork and Limerick operations.
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.
The jobs will be spread across Green Rebel’s Crosshaven, Cork Airport and Limerick offices.
The company currently employs 75 staff and that number will grow to 125 by the middle of next year.
Headquartered in Crosshaven in Co Cork, Green Rebel uses its fleet of ships, aircraft and technology in the collection, processing, and analysis of marine and metocean data.
The company 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.
Green Rebel said it is engaging with all developers to provide world-class data acquisition and processing capabilities on their doorstep.
CEO of Green Rebel John Wallace said that the waters around Ireland and further afield are set to become a major source of renewable energy generation, adding that this is an absolutely essential element of effort to combat climate change.
“The quality survey work being undertaken by Green Rebel right now is designed to both protect the environment and allow wind farm developers to harness its potential,” Mr Wallace said.
“The need for revolution has never been greater and at Green Rebel we are passionate about being a dynamic contributor to help achieve a more sustainable future for all. We are building on a team with great experience and we are looking for people that share this passion,” he added.
