The prefab weir is in place. We went up on Wednesday with Owen, Richard and Samanta (what is the collective noun for Interns?)

Its been 4 weeks of dry and warm / hot!. Afon y Cwm at Hafod y Porth farm is running low and the main weir work has been completed on our 100kw hydro. Pipe butt welding is complete, turbine building is being clad and the final roof covering going on this week. Turbine arriving in 4 week and the substation building is in place… looking good for an end of September switch on. Slight fly in the ointment. Few weeks delay on gaining our G59 or gird witnessing and connection. If this is the worst then i think we have had another good hydro project

the 3/4 of a Kilometer of 350mm pipe is on place and ready to be burried. It is very very dusty up there

    It really was a scorcher, ended up stopping for an ice cream at the viewpoint near Cwm Dyli power station on the way home. It was great to see the hydros at different stages of development, thanks for showing me round.
