Energia has officialy opened the 95MW Meenadreen wind farm in Ireland’s north west.
The €145m project features 38 Nordex N90/2500 turbines and is located in Donegal.
Each turbine is 115 metres high and has a rotor diameter of 90 metres.
The company said it has also completed a pilot project for autonomous drone inspections of the wind farm’s turbines.
“The new drone capability has the potential to automatically identify snags or defects and helps to enhance overall efficiency and safety on site,” Energia said.
It also announced the funding of €95,000 for a third phase of its Meenadreen Community Fund, which has already invested €45,000 in projects of benefit to local communities.
Energia Renewables managing director Peter Baillie said: “This is an internationally prestigious development which is contributing to economic growth and the wellbeing of communities across the island of Ireland through the clean and efficient production of renewable energy.
“We will also be a continuing contributor of local authority rates for the lifespan of the wind farm, which will be a minimum of 25 years.”
