Worker in high-visibility PPE undertaking a pump test on site in Eryri
Essential pump test at Llandecwyn
Important test taking place for 48 hours during week commencing 8 April 2024

During the week commencing 8 April 2024, we will be carrying out a pump test at our Llandecwyn site, which is an important part of our work to safely construct our shaft. This test will need to run for 48 hours, including overnight. 

We want to make sure that any impact on the local community is kept to a minimum and we are committed to taking all necessary precautions to minimise any disturbance to the best of our ability. 

We will be erecting acoustic barriers to mitigate the expected noise levels of the generator which is required to power the pump test. These will be put in place before the overnight test period and our noise modelling shows that these will ensure that any noise will be kept below permitted levels. 

We apologise in advance to our site neighbours for any inconvenience or disturbance caused, and appreciate the patience and cooperation of the local community as we undertake this stage of the Eryri VIP project.

If you have any questions about any matter relating to the project, please contact the Eryri VIP project team by emailing us at [email protected] or calling 0800 018 1898 (and leaving a message if prompted – messages are checked frequently, and a member of the team will call you back).
