Fuinneamh Sceirde Teoranta is a Galway Gaeltacht based company developing an offshore wind farm at the Skerd Rocks, some 5km to 8km off the coast of Carna in County Galway.

FST has completed its Environmental Impact Assessment and applied for a Foreshore Lease for a 100MW project in May 2008. FST is due to receive a grid connection offer in late 2010 (under Gate 3) for the 110 kilovolt electricity distribution station that is proposed for the Camus/Screeb area of Connemara. The Skerd Rocks project is the only proposed offshore windfarm on the West Coast.
