New projects in England
After two years of development we have received construction licences for 12 new projects in the United Kingdom. The construction will be completed in spring 2021.
We have achieved another great success in the United Kingdom. Currently, we are developing 12 new projects which were all permitted and obtained pre-accreditation by the end of March 2019. The total installed output of these projects is almost 5 000 kW. Most of the schemes are located near Manchester, some also in Wales.
An exciting opportunity is the use of the hydro potential of the Manchester Ship Canal. We first restored Barton Locks, a small hydro power plant installed in 1994 with an output of 720 kW.
Building on our success at Barton Locks we have obtained Planning and Environmental Permits for five more projects on the Manchester Ship Canal (Eastham Locks, Howley Weir, Woolston Weir, Irlam Locks and Mode Wheel Locks). The total capacity of these plants is more than 2 000 kW and construction is scheduled to be finished by spring 2021.
