RES and Airtricity Sign Wind Farm Sales Deal

RES UK & Ireland Ltd has an agreement to sell the eight turbine Slieve Divena Phase II wind farm project in Northern Ireland to Airtricity Developments (UK) Ltd. Slieve Divena Phase II was granted planning consent in 2007 and will be situated near Sixmilecross in County Tyrone.

It is a 20 MW extension to the existing 30 MW project, which became operational in March 2009 and comprises 12 turbines of 2.5 MW.  This project was also developed by RES before being sold to Airtricity in 2007. 

Commenting on the sale, Stephen Wheeler, general manager Ireland of Airtricity said: “The Slieve Divena extension will not only continue and deepen the relationship between Airtricity and RES but will also help us to partner with communities in Northern Ireland to secure our energy independence, end our dependency on foreign fossil-fuel imports, and help Northern Ireland meets its binding EU 2020 targets on Renewable Energy generation.”
