ESB Wind Farm Commenced its Constructions in Co Derry

The construction of a new wind farm proposed by ESB wind farm has commenced its construction. The wind farm Curry free located at Co Derry is expected to use six wind turbines, each measuring 100 m tall with rotors measuring 80 m in diameter to provide power to 8000 residents. 

It has hired the services of RES, a British wind energy company, to build this wind farm flanked by New Buildings and Dunamanagh and is anticipated to complete the project in 12 months time.

The state-owned electricity service recently commissioned its new 20 MW wind farm located in Co Tyrone with eight turbines and started providing electric power to 20,000 residents of the locality. All the current project developments of the company are in sequence to its earlier announcements of acquiring Northern Ireland Electricity (NIE) along with its total power delivery network from Viridian the proprietor of the company for €1.25 billion. The transaction will enable ESB to hold assets valued more than €7 related to transmission and distribution.

ESB has designs to hand over the management of the network to System Operators Northern Ireland, a state company owned by Eirgrid that has been involved in administrating the national grid of the republic from 2006.
