Invis Energy’s Knocknagoum wind farm begins operation

Largest wind farm to have been built in Ireland in 2013 boasts capacity of 44.35 MW.

Located in the Stack’s Mountains in County Kerry, Knocknagoum consists of 26 Vestas [v52] turbines and is capable of producing enough clean renewable energy to power over 29,000 homes, saving 72,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Invis Energy's Michael Murnan said the company completed project financing for its second wind farm (Leitir Gungaid, a 42.8MW project located on the Atlantic Coast in Galwa) is expected to start operating in mid-2014. Invis Energy also has a project pipeline of almost 300MW of generation capacity scheduled to be built in Ireland over the next two years.

Together, Leitir Gungaid and Knocknagoum represent an investment of more than €160 million and, when both are operational, will provide enough clean renewable energy to supply 60,000 households and will save Ireland 145,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, Murnan claims.
