May 2014 - RES SUBMITS FURTHER ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION (FEI)
RES has submitted Further Environmental Information (FEI) for Barr Cregg Wind Farm in response to queries raised by statutory consultees (Planning Reference A/2014/0401/F). The FEI application included a separate planning application for an alternative access track (Planning Reference A/2014/0114/F), that in combination with other proposed amendments would allow the onsite infrastructure footprint to be reduced. RES have also submitted a separate planning application for 14 passing bays (Planning reference A/2014/0112/F) located along the Craigatoke Road and Slaghtmanus Road (in part) with the express purpose of facilitating construction of the wind farm.
Hard copies of the FEI are available for inspection during normal opening hours and for purchase at The Diamond Centre, 630 Baranailt Road, Claudy, County Londonderry, BT47 4EA at a price of £50.

September 2013 - MET MAST INSTALLED AT BARR CREGG
RES is erecting a temporary meteorological mast at the location of the proposed Barr Cregg Wind Farm. The mast, which has its own planning consent (A/2011/0466/F), will enable wind speed data to be accessed remotely and analysed by RES' technical specialists. As Garth McGimpsey, the Project Manager for the site, explains, "Our technical team will use the data to plot the site specific wind speed and direction for a minimum of 12 months. The data gathered will be used to assess and select the most suitable turbine for the Barr Cregg Wind Farm should planning consent be granted, enabling us to maximise the energy output from Ireland's vast indigenous renewable energy source".
