Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm turbine delivery trial run on 5 August

A trial run for turbine delivery to the Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm in Powys takes place on Friday 5 August and will be passing through Pant on the A483.

res powering change logoThe timings of the trial run are dependent on a number of factors including police availability. Updates will be published on the project website (www.garreglwydhill.co.uk/turbine-deliveries/trial-run) as and when the timeframes become known, so please do check the website the day before the scheduled trial run for the latest information on when it is expected to begin.

The purpose of the trial run is to undertake a drive through of the delivery route with an empty ‘Abnormal Indivisible Load’ (AIL) vehicle to confirm the roadworks along the A483 which have been ongoing over the past six months are suitable and that the turbine components can be delivered to site with minimal disruption.

It is also an opportunity for the police to finalise the escorting arrangements for the delivery of the turbine components, which will travel from the Port of Entry in Liverpool to the Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm site, located between Felindre and Llanbadarn Fynydd in Radnorshire, Powys, starting in September 2016.

The upcoming trial run has been arranged to specifically test the turbine delivery route for RES’s Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm, which is a separate project to Awel Newydd’s Tirgwynt Wind Farm (the turbine deliveries for which began on 25 July). The full turbine delivery programme for RES’s Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm (which shares the same route as Tirgwynt Wind Farm through Wales until it splits at Welshpool) is anticipated to begin on 12 September 2016.
