Renewable energy consultancy SgurrEnergy has completed technical due diligence and resource assessments for GE Energy Financial Services' first wind energy equity investment in Ireland.

Developed by Element Power, the 17.1 MW Acres and 34.2 MW Barranafaddock wind projects will also be among the first wind farms to utilize GE's newly launched GE 2.85-103 turbine.

SgurrEnergy says it is now carrying out construction monitoring on behalf of GE Energy Financial Services for the duration of construction of both sites, expected to be completed in 2015.
