DONG representatives on Island to discuss wind farm concerns

Mon, 03 Sep 2012

Representatives from DONG Energy will be on the Island this week to discuss plans for an extension to a wind farm in the Irish Sea.

The company is planning to extend its Walney wind farm which is located around 31KM south east from the Isle of Man.

The public meeting will take place at the Villa Marina on Wednesday between 1pm and 7pm.
