Following a lot of work on the ground which saw miles of roads being built and ground works being put in place the first of the wind turbines have now arrived on the site of the new Boggeragh Mountain wind farm development.
Over the coming weeks these wind turbines will be erected on their bases with the help of one of the largest cranes in use in Ireland at the moment.
The 57mw project when complete will be Ireland’s largest stand alone wind farm. The project at a cost in excess of €100 million will be able to generate enough power to supply the electricity needs of 30,000 Irish householders annually.
The company behind the project Green Wind Energy Ltd. hope to have 19 turbines in place before the end of the year.
Turbines have been passing through Millstreet at 5:30am waking up lots of people. They are huge and are well worth seeing in person.
