In accordance with Section 182A of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended, Amazon Data Services Ireland Ltd. (ADSIL), hereby apply to An Bord Pleanála for permission for a Strategic Infrastructure Development described as follows:

The proposed development comprises the provision of a double circuit 110kV underground transmission line between the Belcamp 220kV and 110kV Substation (permitted under ABP Ref.: VA0014) located to the north of the R139 and the Darndale 110kV Substation (permitted under DCC Reg. Ref.: 3288/16 & Reg. Ref.: 3874/15) located at the former Diamond Innovations Site, Clonshaugh Business and Technology Park, Dublin 17. The proposed transmission line covers a distance of approximately 2 km within the following townlands:

  • Belcamp, Co. Dublin;
  • Clonshaugh, Co. Dublin;
  • Willsborough, Co. Dublin.

The underground cable will follow a route originating at the Darndale Substation extending north along the periphery of a green field site for a distance of c. 180m, before realigning east for a further distance of approximately c. 390m. The route then enters the R139 on the south west side of the roundabout adjacent to the Clayton Hotel. The proposed transmission line proceeds eastwards and runs along the route of the R139 before entering private lands south of the River Mayne. The transmission line then passes under the River Mayne via open cut before entering the Belcamp Substation site from the south. 3 no. joint bays are proposed on each circuit, providing for a total of 6 no. joint bays at 3 no. locations. The development includes adjacent access paths, connections to the two substations, all associated construction works, and all ancillary works.

An Environmental Impact Assessment Report and Natura Impact Statement (Stage 2 Appropriate Assessment) have been prepared in respect of this application.
