ESB, through its wholly owned subsidiary Gort Windfarms Ltd, is to decommission the Derrybrien Wind Farm in Galway. This follows on from the decision of An Bord Pleanála on 4th February not to grant substitute consent. ESB consequently paused operation of Derrybrien. Following careful consideration ESB has now decided to decommission the wind farm.
ESB will now prepare for the decommissioning of the 70 wind turbines in accordance with planning laws and regulations.
