…and where is the pestilence? Hydro work progresses well despite the weather

First it was the floods and now the deep snow. But this was all expected in building a hydro on the southern flanks of Snowdon. The work is progressing well despite the elements. It is an advantage working on the rocky sections first. No siltation or soil impact in the bad weather. Contactors are working with within the very narrow ecological corridor. Rob in the digger has one of the best views in the country out of his digger window. As he said “it beats Llangefni high street” A second and much bigger digger is now working up towards Rob in the 8t digger. The first and biggest obstacle  was the rock bench  and needed working around at Coed Rhywallt . This has come away easily (shale) The stones are ideal for the pipe cladding further up. The site is also behind the mountain wall and so is out-of-sight and from the looks of things will moss over in no time. Only problems so far has been a few pecker breakdowns but should be sorted soon

On time and quality looks good.

  1. I assume even with the breakdowns, Rob has been able to keep his pecker up? (See what I did there?)
    Nice work all !
