Ørsted is in the process of developing a new renewable energy proposal to repower the existing Kilgarvan I and Kilgarvan II (Inchincoosh and Lettercannon) wind farms.
The site is located in Co. Kerry, approximately 7km north-east of Kilgarvan village and approximately 7.5km west of Coolea, Co. Cork.
Kilgarvan I has been in commercial operation since 2007 and Kilgarvan II since 2009. Collectively, these existing wind farms comprise 28 turbines, with an installed capacity of 77.5MW.
It is expected that the repower proposal will include up to 11 turbines, replacing the existing 28 turbines with modern, higher capacity and more efficient generators. Over the coming months, the site will be subject to an intensive programme of environmental investigations and surveys, which will help to inform final designs, in advance of our lodging of a planning application. While this progresses, we will be continuing to actively engage with the local communities surrounding the site.
