We catch up with Eryl Roberts, Project Manager for Jones Bros / Balfour Beatty for the latest news from site.
“Works are currently progressing on schedule with a lot of activity still ongoing. Thanks to some fantastic summer weather, the site team have now completed the main concrete pours at 26 turbine foundations. 14 of these have had the smaller upstand pour completed and are now ready to have the turbines bolted into place in early 2016. In addition to this we have opened works on a further 10 turbine locations and implemented 12 kms of brand new access track.
We recently wrote to you regarding the Pen y Cymoedd Festival Opening Celebration due to take place on 30th September. We have made the decision to postpone the event until next year due to ongoing construction works onsite. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you onsite next year and will confirm the date as soon as we can.
Don’t forget that there are many walking and mountain bike trails onsite for you to enjoy over the Summer period should you wish to experience the wind farm at your own accord. The area has changed significantly over the last three years due to the new infrastructure so please download this Site Map to take with you. If you would like a paper copy please email us with your address and we will post one out to you.
