The South Westerlies is located at the end of the Irish Atlantic coast, close to Cork. Located on the west side of the peninsula, the area has been traditionally used for fishing, with the most significant industries being the fishing and manufacturing of textiles and footwear. In recent years, however, the area has experienced a dramatic increase in tourism, with more than twenty thousand visitors coming every year.
Although the area has previously been occupied by a small fishing village, today the area is being developed into large commercial development, and is home to a number of major multinational companies, and a significant population of international students. Despite the growth of the local population, the number of people working on the wind turbines has declined, making the overall project significantly less expensive.
As part of the development process, the local people have been approached by the company planning to construct the wind turbines, which aim to bring employment and prosperity to the entire area. To ensure the success of the new development, the company has been able to secure a contract with the local council, in order to provide the necessary permits.
The South Westerlies wind turbines are part of a large offshore wind development project, which aims to supply one of the UK’s major electricity suppliers with clean, renewable energy. This new energy source is estimated to be able to reduce carbon emissions by up to sixty-five percent, making it a far greener option than other sources of renewable power.
The wind turbines will be situated approximately five miles out from the water on the west side of the island and will be built to a height of around twenty feet. This height is much higher than other wind turbines currently in use.
The South Westerlies wind turbines are expected to produce enough electricity to meet the needs of around thirty thousand homes, in addition to providing the local population with a source of affordable energy. Once completed, the wind turbines will provide an abundant source of alternative energy, which will contribute greatly to the economic well being of the area. Even as the cost of construction is beginning to reflect this fact, there is a marked increase in demand for the power produced by the wind farms, which is expected to increase in the future.
Due to the location of the wind farms, a wide range of buildings and structures will need to be erected to provide adequate cover from the wind generated by the wind turbines. However, the majority of the structure will not be constructed from wood or metal, but from concrete, which is durable and very strong, and durable.
