Works on site

We’re coming to the end of the process to clear up the site and get it running again after the serious autumn floods. We’ve been working with our long-term hydro experts at Derwent Hydro. They’ve tried hard to refurbish first our old generator (damaged in floods some years back) and then the most recent generator, but without success – both were seriously damaged. It may be that we can scavenge some parts to make a backup generator in the future, but for now we’ve had to buy in a new machine.

For an idea of what we’ve been doing to clean up the site see this short video expertly shot and edited by Peter Batt – many thanks Peter, and to the rest of the team who have been down on site getting things tidied up and/or supporting the works in other ways:

John Sandison, Chris Deaves, Jerry Turnbull, Jon Halle, Vicki Orttewell, Richard Orttewell, Ainsleigh Rice, Clare Tibbits, Daniel Wilson.
