Oweninny Wind Farm is a 192.31MW onshore wind power project. It is planned in Mayo, Ireland. According to GlobalData, who tracks and profiles over 170,000 power plants worldwide, the project is currently at the partially active stage. It will be developed in multiple phases. The project construction is likely to commence in 2017 and is expected to enter into commercial operation in November 2019. Buy the profile here.


The project is being developed by Oweninny Power and Oweninny Power 2 DAC. The project is co-owned by Bord na Mona and ESB International, with their respective ownership stake of 50% each.

The project is expected to supply enough clean energy to power 100,000 households, to offset 210,000t of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) a year. The project cost is expected to be around $685.03m.

The Oweninny Wind Farm (Oweninny I), will have 100m high towers.

The Tubular Steel structure to be installed at the Oweninny Wind Farm (Oweninny II), site are expected to be 117.5m high.

Development status

The project construction is expected to commence from 2017. Subsequent to that it will enter into commercial operation by November 2019.
