The National Trust Plas Newydd Marine Source heat pump has a date looming which can not shift. Unless of course we have a go at stopping the Moon. The 31st of March see’s the lowest tide for a few months and because of the conditions in our marine licence, breeding cycles of certain plants and animals and other such considerations unless we get the head wall (the far end of the pipe) 60m into the Menai Straits by next Monday then we are a bit stuffed until September. Alan and his team of GH Jones are working flat-out but only when tide allows which means some weird hours on the shore line. The work is advancing very quickly and it promises good weather! This is the advantage of a lot of prefabrication and planning…sort of plug and play and we are confident it should all be finished in the next few days!

The Caisons are then placed o top of the pipe to give it protection from damage. Dragging anchors and such like
