Permit for 19.5 MW wind farm in Northern Ireland

Irish wind energy company Airtricity has received a siting permit for a 19.5 MW wind farm at Tappaghan Mountain in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. The £16 million project is Airtricity's first in Ireland north of the border, although it has ambitious plans for further wind farms in both the north and south of Ireland. Work on building the 13, 1.5 MW turbines is to begin in February. GE Wind has an option agreement as the turbine supplier. Airtricity says the local community will reap benefits from the wind farm, as £1000 per turbine, £13,000 in total, will be invested in local community schemes each year.
