Our second site for Phase 3 is located at Shanmaghry Road, Pomeroy (Northern Ireland). This is approximately 4.5km southeast of Pomeroy and 60km west of Belfast. Planning permissions have been granted (Reference M/2012/0584/F) for a wind turbine with a maximum hub height of 39.5m and tip height of 56.5m.
The turbine is to be operated at a power level of 225kW. Upon evaluation, the site is estimated to produce an annual average wind speed of circa 7.9 m/s. This in theory will produce an annual yield of circa 960,000 kWh.
The wind turbine site is in single land ownership, and is subject to a 25-year lease agreement. A grid connection offer has been made and accepted to NIE’s (Northern Ireland Electricity) 11kV network. The installed turbine will be a Pioneer W49 (De-Rated to 250 kW).
