Waterways power stations

According to the Sunday Business Post [paywall], an American venture capitalist firm and a Singaporean company have considered buying the Tarbert (Shannon Estuary) and Great Island (Suir Estuary) power stations from Endesa, which bought them from the ESB. Endesa had intended to invest in its Irish operations, but it was taken over by an Italian company, Enel, in 2009; Enel wrote down the value of the Irish assets and wants to sell them off.
