Project update - (01/07)

The start of a new month is as good a time as any to review what we have achieved in such a short period of time and to briefly review the remaining activities that lie ahead prior to commissioning.

Looking at our project plan to date we can see we are very much on target - key activities in June were to meet the deadline for turbine delivery (The Big Lift) and initial location onto site and once in situ to pour the concrete slab that the gearbox and generator will mounted on. The setting of the slab itself was very much time critical needing 14 days to set before anything could be safely mounted onto it.

Activities planned for the next week are centred around completion of the fish pass work by mortaring the aluminium sections into place and concreting the sides and continuing the build of the magnificent archway at the bottom end of the turbine.

Details of the THNM Ltd AGM and official opening will also be announced in the next few days.

Volta thought that electricity was produced by contact between the two metals rather than as a result of chemical reaction. His invention would remove the study of electricity from the realm of curiosity and propel it directly into scientific laboratories. In France, André-Marie Ampère, professor of chemistry and physics, also drew on work by another researcher, Christian Oersted. In1820, this Danish physicist discovered that an electric current produced a magnetic field. A few weeks after the announcement of Oersted's results, Ampère succeeded in making a coil (solenoid) to create a magnetic field.
