Air Core have proved to be a straight forward and professional organisation to work with. Our relationship formed back in January 2011 when Air Core completed a feasibility study on my lands, and reported back within a week with their findings. The lands are located within the Mournes AONB so I was dubious whether they would be suitable, but Air Core had identified that my site would be suitable from a visual and wind resource perspective and it was worth applying for permission on. The sign up process was straight forward and following this Air Core had submitted an application within two weeks. The application process time took approximately 12 months, a bit longer than what is typical but this was due to the large amount of environmental reporting that Air Core undertook. The site has also gone through the NIE grid connection process and turbine is currently being erected with full commissioning due imminently. I look forward to continuing what has been a mutually rewarding relationship thus far with a professional and honest organisation.
