Please see below turbine component delivery information for the week commencing 21st March. With the weather in an improved state at the moment, deliveries will continue as they have been over the last few weeks. 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.

This means they will arrive at the bottom of the Rhigos between 12:30 and 14:30.
