NTR has appointed leading renewable energy and infrastructure consultancy Natural Power as the asset manager of Teevurcher Wind Farm. The wind farm, located in Co. Meath in the Republic of Ireland, is currently under construction with Natural Power providing project management. The company successfully tendered for the asset management contract and will provide the full range of operational services to the client NTR.
Services from Natural Power, which include 24/7 support, range from site and high voltage system management, commercial back office support, advanced performance engineering (including operational reporting and analysis), and safety and environmental compliance.
Works on site are progressing on programme, with Teevurcher Wind Farm’s three turbine foundations poured to date and internal fit-out of the control building ongoing.
“Our Operations and Asset Management team is delighted to continue Natural Power’s involvement with NTR and Teevurcher into the operational phase,” said Conor Sheehan, Head of Operations and Asset Management at Natural Power Ireland. “This is the second NTR site in Ireland and forth overall which Natural Power are working with NTR to deliver a safe and efficient asset.
“The Natural Power construction team is working closely with NTR to deliver a quality asset, and to facilitate a smooth transition into operations. We very much look forward to working hard to manage and optimise performance of this asset on behalf of NTR in the coming years.”
Teevurcher will produce enough clean energy to meet the needs of around 7,500 homes from its five Senvion MM82 turbines with a maximum installed capacity of 10.25MW.
Joe Dalton, Asset Management Director at NTR, noted his delight that the relationship with Natural Power would continue through the operational phase of the project.
“Natural Power was selected to manage the site based on its track record and the comprehensive suite of operational services. We will work closely with the team on this project to safely transition to operations, and to optimise the wind farm’s performance over the coming years,” said Dalton.
