Construction update 19th October

Progress has remained fairly slow over the past 10 days with high winds preventing much installation work, but there was at last a break to get T1 installed.

The first two tower sections of T2 also went up last week and they hope to complete the rest of the turbine in the next few days if the forecast holds.

All the components have now been delivered to site; the base tower section for T3 is ready to be lifted at the crane pad there, but there isn’t enough room to store the other two sections there as well, so they are on the T1 hardstanding for now and will be moved down to T3 next week once the base section has been erected.
