Statement from ESB Trading

Emergency Generation Tender

In response to EirGrid’s tender to secure temporary emergency generation issued in October 2021, ESB submitted a proposal to accommodate up to 200 MW of temporary emergency generation at its Northwall site to meet the tender requirements.

As part of this process, ESB has now agreed to enter preliminary works contracts to progress preparatory works on site, so as to preserve the project schedule in the event of a contract being awarded by EirGrid to ESB for the provision of temporary emergency generation.
