First Flight Wind appoint Consense

Consense have this month launched an online Stakeholder Management Tool for First Flight Wind, a consortium between B9 Energy, DONG and RES.

First Flight Wind is proposing the development of a 600MW wind farm off the coast of County Down, which if approved, could produce enough power to supply up to 20% of Northern Ireland’s electricity demand.

With plans to submit in 2015, First Flight Wind has committed to a comprehensive and thorough consultation process, and as such required a system which will allow them to manage and analyse both online and offline consultation activity. Their Stakeholder Management tool, powered by a bespoke Open Debate system includes additional functionality such as the ability to reply to online correspondence from personal email accounts, as well as assign areas of interest to all consultation feedback.

As the project progresses we will add further functionality to the First Flight system including an online questionnaire and automated weekly reports.
