June 28 (Renewables Now) - Ireland's An Bord Pleanala on Wednesday said it has granted planning permission for a 19-turbine wind farm at Meenbog, Croaghonagh and Cashelnavean, in County Donegal.

The approval comes with a number of conditions, including shadow flicker requirements.     

The development, which will have a capacity of more than 50 MW and feature turbines with ground to blade tip heights of up to 156.5 metres (513.5 ft), has been proposed by Planree Ltd. The latter submitted the application for permission in December 2017.

The project is a revision to a 49-turbine wind farm which was rejected by the Board in 2016.
