It’s been a very wet few months but today provided a blessed respite as the eye of a low pressure system moved over the site. The weather has made life difficult for the contractors while they undertake the deep dig for the pipe route through Briglands Estate. The volume of water coming down through the field is hampering the efforts to remove material to the depths required.
Normally they would come back when the weather improves, however to meet our schedule we have to persevere otherwise we will fall behind. On better news, the pipes have started to arrive on site and the foundations for the power house have been dug. The latter has proved a much easier task than expected with the sandy soil conditions they found at the lower end of the works. We hope the weather will get better soon so our contractors don’t have to wade knee deep in the mire. We’ll keep you updated.
