Two wind farms open

TWO wind farms have been opened in Tyrone by Irish Life Investment Managers and Northern Ireland's Viridian.

The companies are aiming to become the country's largest producer of wind energy.

The farms, on Crighshane and Church Hill, cost €74m and can generate 50.6 megawatts, enough to power about 30,000 homes.
