Ireland’s ESB, Coriolis to Develop $918 Million of Onshore Wind

(Bloomberg) — Ireland’s Electricity Supply Board and
Coriolis Energy Ltd. will work together to develop 600 million
pounds ($918 million) of onshore wind farms in the U.K.

The companies plan to build as much as 400 megawatts of
wind across nine projects, Dublin-based ESB said Tuesday in an
e-mailed statement. That would generate enough power for about
225,000 homes, with the first facility expected to operate by
2019, it said. While most projects are in Scotland,
opportunities will be pursued across the U.K., it said.

“This partnership gives us an opportunity to increase our
presence and capability in onshore wind in the U.K. through high
quality projects,” Pat O’Doherty, chief executive officer of
ESB, said in the statement.
