Today we moved from testing to running 24/7. CEC have closed the upper penstock so all water flow is now through the turbine.
However the reservoirs are so low that only the basic compensation flow is available for use, only just enough to allow electricity generation. What’s needed now is more rain.
A formal opening of the scheme by Fergus Ewing MSP is being planned for 1st September and before that we expect to complete the civils work and tidy up the site.
