At the Portan Converter Station site, approximately four hectares of the seven hectares is dominated by an unmanaged grassland meadow, with intensely managed amenity grassland areas, and a small area of native woodland plantation also present.

EirGrid is funding an evidence-based approach to biodiversity enhancement at the Portan site during a three year pilot project.
