ESB and Coillte in discussions to deliver renewable energy projects
12 February 2019
ESB has today announced that it is engaged in bilateral discussions with Coillte which, if successful, would lead to the establishment of a new joint venture development company to deliver 1,000 MW of renewable energy by 2030.
It is proposed that a new joint venture will build on a successful track record of the two companies working together at Raheenleagh and Castlepook wind farms, in Co Wicklow and Co Cork respectively, where about 70MW of operational capacity has been developed.
With appropriate approval in place, construction of the projects would commence in the early 2020s. They would be sensitively located, building on ESB’s and Coillte’s long experience of working with communities across the country.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2019/02/12/48276/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/a-aaaaacoillte-1024x576.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/a-aaaaacoillte-300x300.jpgNewsCoillte,ESB,wind farms
