The Project

The Project

In line with ongoing company strategy, Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on Oweninny Bog located in North Mayo.  The site is situated approximately 12km west of
Crossmolina, 15km east of Bangor Erris, and just north of the N59 national secondary road. The proposed development will be known as Oweninny Wind Farm Phase 3.

Bord na Móna lands extend to approximately 80,000 hectares in total and are located mainly in the Irish Midlands. In 2011, our ‘Strategic Framework for the Future Use of Peatlands’ considered how we could use our land resources for a sustainable future. We recognise that cutaway peatlands have significant potential for the development of wind energy.
