Bessy Bell is part of the Duke's Baronscourt Estate, near Newtownstewart in Col Tyrone. The wind farm is one of five wind schemes now operating in Northern Ireland with power purchase contracts from the province's first Non Fossil Fuel Obligation. All the electricity generated is bought by Northern Ireland Electricity. PowerGen is one of the UK's largest electricity companies.
The Duke of Abercorn congratulated those involved in the wind farm's development: "Today is a tribute to what they have achieved," he said.
