A warm welcome to 2022 and the beginning of our seventh year of hydro-electric generation. The past year has been relatively quiet for the Ludlow Hydro Co-operative. We have undertaken general maintenance tasks throughout the year, and Clive in particular, has done a sterling job keeping the waterways clear of debris, to ensure we maximise the flow of water through our turbine. Happily, there were no major emergencies to trouble-shoot this year – it’s been very much ‘business as usual’. You will find the full calendar year generation figures freshly published on ‘The Scheme’ page of our website.
As we move into 2022, Anthony Shuster (Chairman of the Ludlow Hydro Co-operative), confirms: “We have benefited from high water levels throughout most of the year, with just September being dryer than normal. As such, we have had a strong year of hydro-electric generation which you will see reflected in our Generation Output charts. It gives me pleasure to report that we are well and truly back to normal operation, with continued confidence that our plant is ready to deliver our quota of hydro power across the coming year. In the meantime, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our Co-op Members, contractors and interested parties for their continued support and, to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!”
