October 25 (Renewables Now) - German energy company Innogy SE (ETR:IGY) is commissioning the 10.2-MW Dromadda Beg onshore wind park in Ireland one year after acquiring the consented project.

The three-turbine park is located in County Kerry. It is the company’s first wind park in Ireland, where it has just inaugurated a new renewables-focused office in Kilkenny City.

Innogy Renewables Ireland Ltd intends to grow its local portfolio though the acquisition of existing wind projects and the development of new ones, it said. In March, Innogy bought an equal share of the roughly 600-MW Dublin Array offshore wind development project.

“We have been encouraged by recent government announcements on the new renewables electricity support scheme, in particular the support for ‘auctions’ which will enable renewable project operators to compete with each other to supply green electricity to the Irish grid,” said Cathal Hennessy, managing director of Innogy Renewables Ireland.
