  • Delayed Windsor Castle hydro project hits another snag

    Windsor Castle

    Testing of new hydroelectric equipment at England's Windsor Castle has once again been delayed as high water levels in the River Thames.

    HydroWorld.com reported in August that work on the US$2.7 million scheme had been slowed due to complications with the project's 11,000-volt transmission line.

    The project is being developed by Southeast Power Engineering Limited and includes two Archimedes Screw turbines. Energy produced by the identical 12-meter by 4-meter units will primarily be used to power Windsor Castle, with surplus electricity being fed into England's national grid.

    Officials say testing of the project will begin as soon as water levels drop, with the turbines being fully operational in about three months.
