The Project

The Project

In line with ongoing company strategy, Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm within the Ballivor Bog Group located in Counties Meath and Westmeath.  This Bog Group consists of the following bogs: Ballivor, Bracklin, Carranstown, Lisclogher and Lisclogher West. The proposed development will be known as Ballivor Wind Farm.

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.

Project Outline

We intend to develop the proposed wind farm on the Ballivor, Bracklin, Carranstown, Lisclogher and Lisclogher West bogs located in Counties Meath and Westmeath.

Location

Bord na Móna has selected a study area for the proposed Ballivor Wind Farm.
