November 20 (Renewables Now) - UK-based renewables developer Renewable Energy Systems Ltd (RES) said on Monday it has won a contract from NTR Plc to operate its 25-MW Castlecraig wind farm in Northern Ireland.

The specific wind park is located near Drumquin, in County Tyrone, and consists of 10 turbines that are expected to produce enough electricity for over 18,500 households. The construction of the plant was managed by RES and involved several local firms, among which is Adman from Omagh. The latter was responsible for the civil construction works for the project.

Under an asset management services deal, RES will deliver high-voltage operations, financial management, engineering and control centre operation services for the wind farm. Monitoring will be conducted from its facility in Glasgow.

At present, RES manages almost 700 MW of wind turbine capacity in the UK and Ireland, as well as some 106 MW of solar and 55 MW of energy storage facilities, it said in the press statement.
