…and it looks better in real life. If your into that sort of thing. Hydrolite 15kw Turgo now in place at Hafod y Llan

Out at Hafod y Llan today to see the progress on the various hydros. The Gorsen or small 15kw hydro is moving at a pace. The powerhouse is now resplendent with its new 15kw Hydrolite turgo hydro. The weir take-off is the focus of the current work. Form-work (wooden former to pour the concrete in to a certain shape) is in to make screen and fore-bay tank.  We have had a bit of letdown with our grid connection offer which looks like its going to be September but grid and micro generation often make uncomfortable and long drawn out bed fellows.

Higher up the mountain and an order of magnitude bigger the 640kw hydro is progressing well. The weir site is now a hive of activity. The first concrete pour today of the slab to mount the weir and screen

Hafod y Llan first pour to get the weir slab in place. there is a lot of steel in this. but if you saw the river in spate as i did last week you would understand the steel
