As much as EUR 142 million was in 113 MW of wind farm assets in Ireland and Northern Ireland. NTR owns 51% of wind farm developer and green energy supplier Airtricity. The group reports that in 2004, Airtricity's customer numbers increased 24% to 36,500, turnover was up 37% to EUR 127 million and the company had secured planning consent for Scotland's largest wind farm. This year, most of NTR's EUR 200 million investment will be in UK wind, says a spokesperson.
