Coleraine firm ‘RHI’ supplies another windfarm at Dunbeg
As work commences on the new Gaelectric 42 megawatt windfarm site located on the outskirts of Coleraine and Limavady at Dunbeg, local firm RHI have been selected to supply the rainwater harvesting system to the substation on the site. The sub-station, owned and operated by NIE, will be used for site maintenance the electricity line connecting into NIE’s main transmission network grid. The Rainwater harvesting system installed will provide water for the WC amenities.
The supply of RHI’s system in Dunbeg follows on the back of 5 previous windfarm substations installations over the past 3 years.
RHI’s Managing Director Johnny Coyle explains: “ The importance of the integration of rainwater harvesting systems to windfarms is very significant one, in that it combines water conservation with renewable energy helping reduce environmental impact of the substations themselves.”
