Natural Power completes Old Mill Wind Farm

Construction of Old Mill Wind Farm in County Monaghan, Ireland, for which Natural Power provided owner's engineer services has been completed.

The wind farm was energised at the beginning of September and has been exporting power since November. The site comprises six GE 2.85-103 turbines with an installed capacity of 17.1MW and is owned by Belgian company, Storm.


David Dunne, Construction Project Manager for the project and based at Natural Powers Dublin office, said: "As owners engineer on this project, we have worked closely with Storm throughout an extended pre-construction phase and with all stakeholders through a challenging construction phase to successfully reach commercial operations. As our Irish construction portfolio continues to grow, this latest completion further establishes Natural Powers credentials as a trusted technical adviser in the Irish renewable energy market."

Old Mill Wind Farm is just one of seven construction/owners engineer contracts that the Dublin office is currently managing on behalf of a range of top clients including NTR, Impax Asset Management and Element Power.

Filip Leonard at Storm, said: "We selected Natural Power for this job based on experience and local presence. During the project, Natural Power stayed on top of things and proved to be the reliable, pragmatic partner we needed to materialise the wind farm. The enthusiasm and continued engagement of the team contributed to the successful completion of the project."

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
