Looking good despite being our wettest build

This is without question the wettest project PS Renewables has ever undertaken. Laughton Levels was built during what felt like the wettest winters on record. We had teams of dedicated subcontractors whom didn’t let it get to them, and we connected the site in March 2015, cutting it close for the drop in ROC’s. The weather was always a factor for the team on the ground, with so much mud overtaking the site, that our O&M team were unsure as to how quickly it would repair. But as with all things in nature, the site recovered and our O&M team have been working hard to ensure the ground recovered and is now back to lush pasture.
