Construction continues to make progress on Garlenick wind turbine site
Construction at the site of the proposed two wind turbines on the Garlenick estate continues to make progress.
The bases for the turbines have been built as has the electricity sub-station that is necessary to feed the electricity generated into the cable that will then take the power underground to connect into the grid at St Stephen.
On the evening of 30 September, three long loads travelled through Grampound en route to the site with the blades for the first of the turbines. Each blade is approx. 45 metres in length.
The second set of blades were delivered a week later. Sections of the tower for the second turbine were delivered on 10 October - see photo of the sections of the tower waiting in the layby on the Probus bypass prior to delivery to the site.
Construction is being carried out by Raymond Brown Construction Limited on behalf of the developer, Airvolution Ltd.
