well …along with grid, ecology, archaeology, water availability, turbine building and so on But we have an excellent example where access means we can’t build a hydro even through we have grid and water in plentiful supply. For the Hafod y Llan hydro access is not the simplest site hence the digger working down the mountain but it certainly is not the most difficult. Another milestone was achieved last week when Dave the area Ranger finished the new heavy-duty bridge over to the turbine site. Although only rated to 10t we will be using the nearby ford for the really heavy stuff as this will only happen a few times during the construction. The 6t plus 24t lorry arriving with the Gilkes Turbine for example.
p.s. RIP the previous wobbly foot bridge (It had a charm… and wet rot)
