Wind farm seeks court action  

Credit:  Tim Healy | The Sligo Champion | August 4 2018 | www.independent.ie ~~

A wind farm company has gone to court in a row over its efforts to get connected to the national grid.

Derrysallagh Windfarm has to hook up to the grid by December next year but it claims threatened litigation by a farmer over the running of cables under a public road near his lands could cause delays. The wind farm will have 12 turbines.

The grid connection works between Derryssallagh Windfarm in Knockroe, Derrysallagh, Co Sligo and the substation in Garvaghy, Co Leitrim involves placing cable under the existing public road through various townlands including the lands of Thomas Lavin of Derreenavoggy, Arigna, Carrick on Shannon, Co Roscommon.

Derrysallagh Windfarm Ltd is seeking a declaration that the farmer, who has threatened litigation over the matter, has no right or title in the lands under the public road such as would disentitle the wind farm from carrying out grid connection works.

Last Monday, Mr Justice Robnert Haugton admitted the case to the fast track Commercial Court list.

Project manager of Derrysallagh Windfarm, Denis Calnan, said in an affidavit that should the grid connection works not be completed at all then the company will have incurred in excess of €50million in capital expenditure without any return.

Mr Lavin, said is the owner of lands adjoining the route of the grid connection of the windfarm. Mr Lavin claims to own land underneath the public road where the wind farm laid ducting to the grid connection between November 2016 and May 2017.

The wind farm company intends to recommence the grid connection works once final planning consents are obtained, Mr Calnan said.
