Maintenance - (18 September)

The work on the lower end of the screw is now scheduled to take place on Monday afternoon with an engineer being flown in from the manufacturers in Germany.

Between now and Monday the tail race of the screw will be made water tight to enable the water to be pumped out to enable easier access. The engineer will arrive Monday lunchtime, the bottom end of the screw will be raised and the flange will be re tightened - it is expected that the screw will be operational again by Monday evening.

Whilst any downtime is unfortunate it has allowed us to test and review our maintenance procedures which has been very successful.
