Hydro award

THE engineering firm which designed and built a hydro-electric power station at Sonning has won two awards.

Greenford, of Oxford, won a trophy for sustainability and resilience and another for engineering excellence at the Institute of Civil Engineers Awards.

The £700,000 plant, which opened in June, consists of a 25-ton Archimedes screw on the River Thames at the village weir that can generate enough electricity to power about 120 homes in a year.
