The Crockdun wind energy
project is located 2 km northeast of Loughmacrory, Co Tyrone on the southern
slopes of Copney Hill, along the ridge between the hilltops of Loughmacrory
Hill and Crockdun, Omagh.
Upon completion of the
project, the wind farm will feature five turbines with a combined generating
capacity of 12.5MW. Crockdun wind farm is forecast to deliver enough clean,
green, indigenous electricity equivalent to the needs of approximately 5,700
It is expected that the wind
farm will save emissions of the order of 14,200 tonnes of CO2 annually.
Construction of the Eglish wind energy project commenced in August, 2015. The project comprises three main elements:
- Construction of turbine foundations, site access roads and an electrical sub-station.
- The delivery and installation of five wind turbines, each with a 2.5 MW generating capacity.
- The installation of 4 km overhead cable, from the wind farm site which will connect to the existing electricity grid via Tremoge substation
