Embracing Opportunities Together
Community opportunities for environmental improvement and protection related to the legacy mining issues, combined with leveraging the immense and ‘un-tapped’ heritage of Silvermines dating back over 800 years, form a central part of the development process and are actively being explored.
Silvermines Hydro offers an opportunity to become a catalyst for the continued remediation works in the Silvermines area.
Tipperary County Council view ‘…the proposal to develop a Grid-Scale Pumped Storage Plant on the site of the Macgobar Open-cast pit is something that is, and will be, strongly supported, it is innovative and, if brought to fruition, will satisfy the objectives in the County’s various strategic plans, and will also support the long-term sustainability of the mine rehabilitation works in the wider Silvermines area. This will result in a major contribution to the health and well being of the population and will have the benefit of enabling the area to achieve its economic potential…’
