Aberdeen community hydro scheme moves a step closer

Hydro scheme component lowered into place

The main part of a new community hydro power scheme in Aberdeen has been lowered into place.

It is hoped the Donside Hydro project - aimed at powering about 130 homes on the site of the former Donside paper mill, as well as selling energy to the National Grid - will be generating electricity later this month.

Aberdeen Community Energy (ACE) is behind the project.

The hydro power scheme will harness energy from the River Don.
