Tynagh is a 384 MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) in east County Galway, the Republic of Ireland. The power station is the only independent CCGT plant in the Irish market and provides a flexible daily electricity product to the Irish wholesale electricity market since 2006. It is a major player in securing electricity supply to Galway and the west of Ireland with 9% of the country’s electricity requirements supplied directly to the national grid. The CCGT plant was developed on the former disused Tynagh Mines site, being a major contributor to the local economy while minimising the environmental impact.
