Congratulation to Noel & Joan Walsh of Mace Claremorris Co. Mayo on the completion of there 2.4 mega watt wind farm projected.

Noel & Joan has relentlessly been pushing this project for the last couple of years, the completion of the project has been their greatest gift this Christmas 2009. The 2.4 mega watt wind farm consists of three number 800w E48 Enercon wind turbines. Maloney Group has been there to help them along the road.

ENERCON’s E-48 wind turbine is yet another success story in the company’s medium class power range. With a rated power of 800 kW and a sophisticated rotor blade design, the E-48 wind turbine is the most profitable system within its class. Together with a choice of different tower versions up to 76 m, the E-48 offers an economically sound solution to complex sites worldwide.
