Mercury Renewables, a renewable energy developer based in Mayo, has gone to An Bord Pleanála regarding a pre-application consultation for a wind farm which could represent an investment of €100m.

The company submitted the consultation request with An Bord Pleanála late last month. Mercury would be seeking permission for the construction of up to 15 wind turbines, grid connection and all associated works for the Firlough Windfarm in Bonniconlon, Co. Mayo.

The case is due to be decided in October.
