Green Rebel to create 75 jobs over next two years

Green Rebel, an Irish company that provides survey and data services to the offshore renewable energy sector, is set to create 75 new jobs over the next two years.

The positions will be based in Limerick, Cork and on board Green Rebel’s survey vessels.

The new jobs include oceanographers, geophysicists, data scientists, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, survey vessel crew, technicians and project leads.

The company said it is actively recruiting for 25 of the jobs, and expects to hire another 50 people over the next two years to meet demand for its services.

Green Rebel was established by Irish entrepreneur Pearse Flynn in 2020 and specialises in acquiring, processing and analysing marine, aerial and met-ocean data.

It uses survey boats and aircraft as well as LiDAR buoys and other technologies that are designed and assembled in Limerick.

The company has current and upcoming projects in Ireland, Scotland and off the coast of mainland Europe.

It also has a number of potential projects in international markets such as the United States and Australia.

“Green Rebel is competing on a global scale,” said Kieran Ivers, CEO of Green Rebel.

“We’ve built fast to enter new markets in the UK and mainland Europe with our sights firmly focused on offering our services across other global markets.

“Our experience is that the talent is here and we want to ensure the economic value is created and stays in Ireland,” he added.

Visiting Green Rebel’s Limerick base, Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Simon Coveney said in the decades to come we will see tens of thousands of Irish jobs in the offshore wind sector.

“Green Rebel is beating down a path for other Irish supply chain companies to follow and is building confidence in this sector,” he said.

“Green Rebel has deployed high level engineering and instrumentation to design and manufacture essential technologies for the offshore wind sector.

“Already we’re seeing the opportunities internationally with Green Rebel’s technologies being used by a number of tier-one ORE developers in this field,” he added.

Enterprise Ireland said today’s announcement from Green Rebel underlines the potential that exists for Irish companies in supplying the sustainable energy sector.

“Green Rebel’s innovative technology and talented team are playing a leading role in the development of the green energy sector and we look forward to working with the company as it implements its ambitious growth strategy,” said Mark Christal, Manager Food and Sustainability at Enterprise Ireland.
