The Archimedes Screw turbine is now in place – it arrived last week with some very precise crane work! Installation work is now underway with a target commissioning date of 20th April
We’ve arrived at the most exciting part of the project with the Archimedes Screw now on site and awaiting installation shortly
Many thanks to Marches Biogas who have held the Archimedes screw assembly on their yard until ready to go to site. Some people have asked about the cladding on the screw channel – it will go on after the screw is in place; the river has been to high to complete these works over the winter. See the plans for an idea of how it will look when complete
We’re delighted to say that today the Ludlow Hydro share offer reached its target – thank you to all our subscribers, members and soon-to be members!
We just saw that our planning application is open for public comments. You can see the whole application by going to the Shropshire Planning Portal and searching for 14/04385/FUL. Please do take the time to leave a positive comment if you support the project – it is very helpful for the planners to see that the project has local support – and not just the co-op directors!
Following our successful pioneer share offer we are starting planning work
