The German utility today (15 August) announced the acquisition of the site in Kerry from Dromadda Beg Wind Farm, a company set up to manage the site.
Plans for the project’s three 144.5-metre turbines were approved in 2014.
Construction of the project in the south-west of the country is scheduled to start next month, with commissioning expected in the second half of 2018.
Innogy announced it planned to expand its renewables portfolio and enter new energy markets when it was floated on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Novmber 2016. It opened an office in Dublin in January.
Peter Terium, the company’s chairman, said: "With the Dromadda Beg project, we are taking a first step towards the development of the promising Irish onshore wind market and are thus implementing our expansion strategy consistently."
