WRE Looks Forward to a Busy 2010

Posted in News on Friday 15th January 2010 at 11:26pm

2010 has started briskly for WRE, with many projects progressing.  WRE has recently been appointed to carry out detailed design on a number of sizable and high profile hydro systems and has a further 7 abstraction applications submitted, ranging from 70 l/s to nearly 7000 l/s, and many schemes either formally submitted to planning or close to being so.  WRE has recently commissioned a community hydro scheme for Settle Hydro, via our ongoing relationship with Water Power Enterprises.  In addition to the planned installation work for the year, which will cover Pelton, Crossflow and Screw Turbine systems, WRE has taken on work for upgrade and maintenance work on a number of existing hydro schemes in the South West of England.

WRE continues to contribute to industry panels on the Feed In Tariff, and looks forward to the formal announcements on the level of support in the next few weeks.
