July 4 (Renewables Now) - Norwegian power producer Statkraft AS said today that it has recently launched construction of its 57.6-MW Moanvane wind farm in County Offaly, Ireland.

The company will fund the EUR-86-million (USD 89.8m) project, manage construction and operate the 12-turbine wind farm once it is up and running.

The planning permission for Moanvane was granted in 2018, the year of Statkraft’s arrival in the Irish market. The power producer expects the wind farm to start operations in 2024, it said.

Statkraft’s first project in Ireland is the 23-MW Kilathmoy wind farm, constructed on the border between Limerick and Kerry counties and to which the company later added an 11-MW battery.

In 2019, Statkraft acquired some 320 MW of solar projects in Ireland.
