EDF Renewables Ireland has unveiled plans to develop a 100MW wind farm to the south of Bellacorick in Mayo county in the country. Expected to feature up to 25 turbines, the project will be capable of generating enough electricity to power more than 60,000 homes. The project is expected to be located in a forested area to the northeast of Slieve Carr, nearly 8km southeast of Bangor Erris. EDF Renewables Ireland said that the project team is currently collecting wind data and mapping the environmental constraints on site, which will help in creating a preliminary wind turbine layout.
