Gort Uí Rathaile Wind Farm
Co-development partners FuturEnergy Ireland and SSE Renewables are jointly exploring the potential for a renewable energy project at Gortyrahilly, Ballyvourney, Co. Cork.
FuturEnergy Ireland is a new joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB. Gortyrahilly, a co-development with SSER, is now part of the FuturEnergy Ireland portfolio. Our commitment to the local community remains the same, and so does our dedicated project team.
While this project is at an early stage of development, we believe in communicating with our neighbours right from the beginning. Our aim is to develop responsible projects in a way that is good for us, for society and for our neighbours.
The project Community Liaison Officer is your point of contact and we would encourage you to email or call him for any query relating to the project. These details can be found on the ‘Contact’ page.
The area which is being studied for suitability as a potential wind farm site is situated in Gortyrahilly, Ballyvourney, Co. Cork on a large site, approximately 710 hectares, located approximately 4 km south west of Ballyvourney, close to the Cork/Kerry border.
