9km to the north east of Ballymoney the site for these turbines comprises an area of over 120 hectares of rough grazing land at approximately 200m above sea level.

TCI Renewables are acting as technical consultants for Tec Energy and Wheelhouse Energy who are acting in partnership to develop a wind farm at this location. Having undertaken the necessary preparatory work, TCI Renewables have been successful in securing a planning consent for the development of a single 3MW turbine. A second application has been submitted and a decision in respect of an additional 5 turbines is currently pending.

In submitting the planning applications TCI Renewables prepared the full Environmental Impact Statement in support of the application. The second scheme has required TCI Renewables to undertake additional work regarding the preparation of visualisations and photomontages of the proposed completed development. This requirement was undertaken by the in-house TCI Renewables  team and reflects the ability to meet specialist requirements in a flexible yet professional manner.
