Scottish and Southern Energy To Acquire Slieve Divena Phase II Wind Farm Project
Scottish and Southern Energy plc ("SSE"), through its renewable energy development division, Airtricity, has entered into an agreement to acquire the Slieve Divena Phase II wind farm project in Country Tyrone, Northern Ireland, from RES UK & Ireland Ltd.
Slieve Divena Phase II was granted planning consent in 2007 and will be an eight turbine, 20MW (megawatt) extension to SSE's existing 30MW Slieve Divena wind farm. SSE has over 600MW of onshore wind farm capacity in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in operation, in construction or with consent for development.
Ian Marchant, Chief Executive of SSE, said:
"I am very pleased that we have been able to add the Slieve Divena Phase II project to our growing wind energy portfolio. It is another step towards our target of 4,000MW of operating renewable energy capacity in the UK and Ireland by 2013 and another illustration of the opportunities flowing from our acquisition last year of Airtricity."
