£4m Hydro contract secured

Following on from the success reported last month in securing our first contract with RWE npower renewables, we’re delighted to report that JN Bentley has won a second contract with this prestigious new client.

 The 47-week hydropower project will begin in June this year and will produce an average of more than 10GW hours each year – enough to supply around 2,000 households with their annual electricity needs.

The project involves the construction of a powerhouse, a low profile concrete intake weir on the River Glass and installation of 3.5km of buried 150cm diameter pipeline.

This £4m Black Rock Hydro Scheme in the north east of Scotland will further establish our business as one of the industry leaders in hydropower construction.
