Grid connection works continue


Transformer deliveries on Sunday April 19th and 26th 2015

Our contractors ABB continue with the grid connection works. The next step this month is the installation of two transformers that will enable the power from the wind turbines to be injected into the National Grid.

These transformers are large, weighing several hundred tonnes, so they are classified as abnormal loads. The transformers will arrive shortly at Swansea Docks and will then be transported the 25.5 miles to the Rhigos site at Hirwaun Industrial Estate. and will be escorted by the police between 06:30 am and 10:30 am on Sunday 19th April and Sunday 26th April 2015. A map of the route is available below. We have requested that local businesses keep Thirteenth Avenue and Fourteenth Avenue clear during the delivery times.

We appreciate your understanding and co-operation during this project and would like to apologise in advance for any disruption you may experience.
