Planners rejects 140MW Emlagh

Element Power’s plan to build a 46-turbine wind farm in the Irish midlands has been spiked by the state’s planning authority.

In a decision to be published later this morning, An Bord Pleanala (ABP) has refused the Hudson Clean Energy-backed outfit permission for the up to 140MW Emlagh wind farm in Meath.

Initially lodged in 2014, the project was formerly part of Element’s stalled wind export plans but was revived as a domestic wind farm.

In late 2014, US turbine manufacturer GE took an equity stake in the project.

Despite changes to turbine numbers, tip heights and locations, ABP has turned down planning permission for the project, an ABP spokesman told reNEWS.

The spokesman confirmed that ABP’s Inspector had recommended approval, however, a meeting the authority’s board voted against the project.
