Installation Progress at Radyr Weir

Located on the river Taff in South Wales, Spaans Babcock have installed two huge generators for Cardiff City Council. At over 11m long, 4m wide and weighing 27 tonnes, each turbine is capable of producing up to 225kW of power with the scheme able to provide renewable energy for 550 homes.


Spaans Babcock are proud to support Cardiff in their aspiration to become a ‘One Planet City’ by 2050 and have worked alongside the designers to provide a sustainable energy solution that will improve the ecology of the river Taff by improving fish passage up and down the river and offset carbon emissions by over 750 tonnes per year.
