NewEn is conducting wind measurements via a LIDAR unit. If initial results are successful a met mast of up to 120m in height may be installed for more accurate wind measurement.
Ecological studies have been and continue to be undertaken (flora and fauna).
Additional studies to be undertaken include:
- cultural heritage;
- water table;
- visual aspect;
- noise emission; and
- transport logistics.
Once the wind data is considered to be sufficient, all studies necessary will be undertaken.
Potential conclusion of studies and time of submitting a planning application is anticipated for early 2018.
