Wind Projects

Onshore Projects

Our wind portfolio comprises 22 onshore projects on the island of Ireland together with our interest in a major offshore development project in the north Irish Sea. Since we powered our first wind farm at Skrine in Co. Roscommon in 2012, the developed portfolio of wind projects has grown to 14 operational wind farms with a total generating capacity of 188MW

We expect to grow this portfolio to 400 MW of generating assets by developing our onshore portfolio in Ireland and the acquisition of projects where we can add value.
