Greenford Ltd installs Hydro Screw
Updated: Oct 1, 2019
In January 2017, Greenford Ltd completed this ground-breaking project on behalf of the canal marina company, Pridewater Estates Ltd.
This hydro screw, located on the banks of the Thames in the picturesque village of Sonning in Berkshire, generates enough electricity to completely offset Pridewater Estates’ annual energy usage making them the UK’s first and only 100% green marina and caravan site organisation.
Greenford Ltd were responsible for the design, build and installation of an Archimedes hydro screw, constructing the generator housing structure, landscaping and reinstating the entire site which enabled it to blend seamlessly back into the surrounding landscape.
The site was officially opening by Pridewater Estates’ Terry Lane on 18th May 2017.
