On 31st January 2019 Bord na Móna Powergen Ltd submitted a planning application to An Bord Pleanála for the proposed Derryadd Wind Farm. Planning is sought for the development of 24 turbines with an overall blade tip height of up to 185m. Due to a combination of constraints, the distance to the nearest house from a turbine on the proposed layout is 750 meters.
We intend to develop the proposed wind farm on Derryadd, Derryaroge and Lough Bannow bogs located in South Co. Longford.
Bord na Móna has conducted a detailed site selection exercise to identify the optimal site for the development of a large-scale wind energy project.
We are committed to keeping the local community informed about the project with regular updates, information about public events and newsletters.
