Overview and Timeline

Project Overview

Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on Oweninny Bog located in North Mayo.  The proposed development will be known as Oweninny Wind Farm Phase 3.

Due to the Covid -19 restrictions in place regarding public gatherings, it is not possible to arrange formal information sessions in the local area at this time. Instead, we have launched this dedicated website and are circulating a project information pack to local residents.  This pack contains project information that would normally be displayed at such sessions.

Location

The proposed development site is situated approximately 12km west of Crossmolina, 15km east of Bangor Erris, and just north of the N59 national secondary road.  To view the location, please click here.

 

Number of turbines

As the project is at an early stage the number and location of turbines has not been determined.  Subject to Covid 19 restrictions, we hope to hold Community Information Sessions in local halls/community centres in late 2020 to provide more detailed information such as the number and location of turbines and further information about the project.
