Wind Turbine Planning Applications
We have conducted numerous EIA screening reports for wind turbine sites around the country.
This specific one at Inverin, Co. Galway included a cumulative impact assessment due to an existing wind farm close by. Some detective work was required to find the noise limits set by the planning authority and used as the basis of this assessment.
The existing turbines were modelled as well as the candidate turbines following the latest WEDG-06, ESTU, IOA-SGNs and also consideration of the proposed WEDG guidance.
The assessment demonstrated that there was capacity within the current noise limit for both developments to operate concurrently.
