A 10 year planning permission was granted in 2010 for 5 turbines; 80 m hub and 90 m rotor, 125m tip height. Due to the delay from regulations and grid connections issues, by the time Gweedore Windfarm could proceed ,, those turbines were no longer available, and Gweedore Wind Farm applied for and got an amendment to the existing planning to change the turbines to a slightly larger rotor of 105m and a lower tower of 72.5m, thereby retaining the same overall tip height.
