A Scottish renewable energy and infrastructure consultancy has been appointed by NTR to operate the recently constructed Ora More Wind Farm located in Belcoo, Co. Fermanagh, N. Ireland. 

The Ora More development comprises six GE 2.85 103 turbines which will generate electricity to meet the needs of more than 10,000 homes.

Dumfries-shire-based Natural Power will provide a full range of operational services, including site management, as well as high voltage management, commercial back-office function, health and safety management and operational reporting and analysis, with the Natural Power ‘Control Centre’ providing operational control and emergency response coordination.

Prior to this appointment for the operational phase, Natural Power worked as Owners’ Engineer during the pre-construction and construction phases, and prior to this also provided due diligence services to NTR – a Dublin-based green investment boutique – on the project acquisition.

Conor Sheehan, Head of Operations at Natural Power Ireland, said: “Both NTR and our construction team delivered a quality asset and enabled a smooth transition into operations, and so we very much look forward to working hard to manage and of this asset on behalf of NTR in the coming years.”
