Gaelectric secures planning approval for wind farm

Galelectric will investment some € 22M (£18.3M) into the wind farm in Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

Irish renewable energy company Gaelectric has received planning approval for a 11.5 Megawatt (MW) wind farm at Cregganconroe, Pomeroy, Co Tyrone. The wind farm development will consist of five wind turbines and capable of generating energy for about 6,500 homes.

The Cregganconroe wind farm will require a total investment of approximately £18.3M, and is just one of a number of projects that Gaelectric currently has in planning in Northern Ireland, which together total approximately 130MW.

“We have been working on planning for a range of sites in Tyrone and Antrim for a number of years,” said Gaelectric CEO Brendan McGarth. “The Cregganconroe approval is a further important step for Gaelectric and represents our second planning success in Northern Ireland this year.”

Gaelectric currently has 25 projects at different stages of development on the island of Ireland. Gaelectric’s first wind farm in Roscommon is expected to be commissioned by year end 2010.
