Do you live on the Isle of Man?
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is supportive of sustainability and renewable energy. Manxman, due to join the fleet in 2023 has been designed to be as efficient as possible. Broadly speaking, the Company supports initiatives to tackle the energy challenges of the 21st Century, which includes the development of offshore wind farms as part of the response. However, true sustainability considers all impacts: The Steam Packet Company’s lifeline services sustain our island community. The Company has serious concerns about the cumulative effect the numerous Irish Sea wind farm projects will have on the viability of it routes.
We would urge anyone who is considering responding to any consultation to make sure they are aware of the overall cumulative picture rather than viewing projects in isolation.
