Delay for turbine trial

The long awaitied Langhope Rig trial run which was due to take place earlier this week has been posponed until the second week in May.

Contractors are blaming unforeseen delays to the road improvement works at Martins House and the dummy run will now take place in May 6 and 7.

The rescheduled trial run will take place at the same proposed times as originally planned however timings are subject to change depending on conditions.
