Coole wind farm

Ireland / Wind power / Project

Coole wind farm consists of 13 turbines with a maximum tip height of 175 metres.

With a potential capacity of up to 50 MW, the Coole wind farm would have the capacity to power over 36,000 Irish homes. The areas being considered for this project centre around the boglands in Coole, County Westmeath, in Ireland’s Midlands Region.

There will be an onsite substation located adjacent to the R396 near the proposed site entrance. All cabling will be placed underground. Associated works will include access tracks, turbine foundations and hardstanding areas, a local borrow pit, drainage works, temporary site compound, underground electrical and communications cables between turbines and an underground cable to connect the proposed project to the existing Mullingar 110kV substation. The project will also include an upgrade of local roads.
