Delayed Windsor Castle project on track for end-of-year completion

A plan for hydroelectric production at Windsor Castle has been delayed as a result of complications with the project's 11,000-volt transmission line.

The US $2.7 million scheme, which was to have been operational by now, includes two 12-meter by 4-meter Archimedes Screw turbines and is expected to provide a capacity of 300 kW when complete.

A decision was recently reached to drill two small horizontal tunnels under the River Thames and a nearby rail that will be used for the lines.

A representative from the project's developer, Southeast Power Engineering Limited, says this solution is the most environmentally friendly option and shouldn't disrupt rail service.

Assuming all goes as planned, the project is expected to be producing power by the end of this year.
