Ørsted has taken a final investment decision on the 43.2-megawatt (MW) Farranrory Onshore Wind Farm in Ireland, the Danish renewable energy company said Jan. 18.

Located in Tipperary, the wind farm will feature nine wind turbines. Ørsted said it expects the wind farm to be fully operational by the summer of 2026, lifting the company’s operational solar and onshore wind capacity in Ireland and Northern Ireland to more than 500 MW.

“Wind energy plays a pivotal role in the transition to renewable energy, and we’re proud to confirm that we’ll invest in our 22nd Irish wind farm,” said Kieran White, senior vice president of onshore for Ørsted’s European region.

Farranrory Onshore Wind Farm is expected to provide enough power for the equivalent of Irish 25,000 homes with renewable electricity, Ørsted said.
