Irish wind farm adds Vestas turbines


Ireland Vestas has received a 30 MW order for the Irish Lenalea wind farm, being developed by SSE Renewables and Coillte Renewable Energy.

Vestas will supply and install seven V117-4.2 MW turbines in 4.3 MW operating mode at the project, which is located in County Donegal. The turbines will be serviced through a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, utilizing Vestas’ existing service base in the region. The V117-4.3 MW turbines will rise to a hub height of 76.5 meters and will be first delivered from the second quarter of 2023.

Lenalea wind farm

SSE Renewables is leading on construction of the project and will operate Lenalea wind farm throughout its lifetime. Once operational Lenalea wind farm will generate enough electricity to power almost 20,000 Irish homes with green energy and offset over 31,000 tonnes of harmful carbon emissions annually. Full project commissioning is expected in late 2023.
