About the Project

Oweninny Wind Farm is owned by Oweninny Power DAC, a 50:50 joint venture between ESB and Bord na Móna. In June 2016, An Bord Pleanála granted planning permission for the development of Oweninny Wind Farm consisting of 61 turbines with an overall tip height of up to 176m.

Oweninny is located in North Mayo, west of Crossmolina and east of Bangor Erris, just north of the N59 road. The project site comprises of approximately 2,400 hectares and was formerly utilised for peat harvesting by Bord na Móna to provide fuel for the ESB Bellacorick peat fired power station, which ceased operation in 2005.

The wind farm will be built over two phases and when complete, will have an installed generating capacity of 172MW.
