Ireland's ESB (Electricity Supply Board) and Bord na Móna are pleased to announce that financial close has been reached on the €160 million Oweninny project in North County Mayo. The project will be financed with long-term debt from a consortium of banks including the European Investment Bank (EIB), who are providing 50 per cent of the funding under the Juncker Plan, as well as MUFG Bank, BNP Paribas and AIB.

Located between Crossmolina and Bangor Erris, the site was formerly used for peat harvesting by Bord na Móna to provide indigenous fuel for ESB’s peat fired power station at Bellacorick, up to its decommissioning in 2003. The country’s first commercial wind farm was established at the site in 1992.
