IMG_0975

Please see below turbine component delivery information for the week commencing 20th June. Please note that these are expected times only. Please get in touch if further information is required.

Morning deliveries are expected to leave Swansea Docks at around 09:30. Due to the length of time it takes for the components to travel to their respective turbine locations, we cannot be specific regarding the afternoon delivery time, and deliveries will leave Swansea Docks between 11:30 and 13:30. This means they will arrive at the bottom of the Rhigos between 12:30 and 14:30.
