Green Rebel Expands Operations, Boosting Irish Jobs in Renewable Energy Sector

The Irish renewable energy business, Green Rebel, has announced a substantial job increase as part of its operational expansion. The company is actively recruiting for 25 new positions and anticipates an additional 50 over the next two years to meet growing demand. These roles will be based in Limerick, Cork, and on the company’s survey vessels.

The diverse range of new job opportunities includes positions for oceanographers, geophysicists, data scientists, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, survey vessel crew, technicians, and project leads. Green Rebel, founded by Pearse Flynn in 2020, specializes in providing survey and data services to the offshore renewable energy industry. The company is currently engaged in live and upcoming projects in Ireland, Scotland, and off the coast of mainland Europe, with exploration into potential ventures in international markets, including the US.

Having acquired Crosshaven Boatyard in 2020 and operating multipurpose aircraft for aerial surveys, Green Rebel employs a multi-faceted approach, utilising survey boats, aircraft, and LiDAR buoys to map the ocean and analyse marine, aerial, and metocean data. The company’s Limerick site plays a crucial role in assembling the LiDAR buoys, which operate autonomously at sea, profiling windspeeds at heights of up to 300m.

These buoys provide essential data on waves, ocean currents, and water quality, interpreted by a team of data specialists in Limerick. Minister for Enterprise, Trade, and Employment, Simon Coveney, TD, visited the Limerick site, noting that the offshore wind sector has the potential to create tens of thousands of jobs in Ireland. Coveney commended Green Rebel for leading the way in the Irish supply chain, building confidence, and contributing to the growth of the renewable energy sector.
