Crane at the ready

aach Turbine 2 base tower installed

Today was the first time the 750 tonne crane was set up ready for the first turbine tower installation in the East of the site (below). Unsurprisingly, it was a very windy day on the Rhigos Mountain, meaning that it was not safe enough to lift the first two tower sections into place. The site team will monitor the wind tomorrow morning and make a decision as to whether they can continue with the installation.
