Finished hydro weir and a river in full flow on Snowdon

We have said from the start of the Hafod y Llan hydro project that success should be measured on its finished look as well as energy generated and I hope you agree with us and with only a few weeks of bedding in the most visual bit the weir is looking good

    Hi Kieth, As of yesterday (November 1st) the weir looked great. And the pipe covering is settling and greening. You must be pleased! Well done, and good luck with the turbine. Just one thought; 100mm or 75 mm grill guard on the inflow side of the large through – pipe might be wise. Children will go in that lovely pool! Clive Hudson, Bryn Fedw, Llanfrothen.

      thanks for the comment and we agree with you, having a bar screen fabricated for the pipe end…just in case. Additionally the lovely pool will disappear over the winter as the stones move down the catchment. thanks for the comment
