In the lead up to Global Wind Day on 15 June, Glennmont Partners and outsourced asset management company RES hosted a visit from Northern Ireland schools.
Pupils from St Joseph’s Primary School in Dunloy recently enjoyed a visit to Gruig Wind Farm in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland. The pupils were given a tour of the wind farm, with the visit designed to integrate sustainable development into education and help pupils develop an understanding of the challenges, impacts and responsibilities of making lifestyle choices that reduce our environmental impact.
Gruig Wind Farm was built by RES in 2009 and consists of 10 turbines totalling 25MW. The wind farm is now owned by Glennmont Partners but operated and maintained by RES on their behalf.
