It was considered that the best way to deliver the project within the constraints was to adopt a collaborative approach and the project was awarded to Dawnus on a 2 stage NEC3 Contract with Early Contractor Involvement to develop the scheme and take it through planning. This approach allowed the whole team to work together collaboratively, closely manage the commercial and programme risk and ultimately implement a delivery plan that secured the essential renewables Feed In Tariff that made the business model work for the Cardiff Council.

The scheme involved the construction of a new 400kW hydroelectric power plant incorporating the installation of two Archimedean-screw turbines sited within a turbine housing located behind the eastern abutment of Radyr Weir. The turbines generate enough power to run 550 homes and require extremely low maintenance. The facility is unmanned and fully automated with the ability for remote monitoring and control. The plant can even be monitored and operated from your iPhone. NRW also required the scheme to incorporate a £1M fish pass and fish trapping facility and the scheme also includes an array of other associated infrastructure and necessary flood defences.

Come along to a joint CEW and CECA Wales presentation and tour of the project on Monday 28th November.
