Following major repair works to Romney Weir in Windsor, Jackson won the contract to install a pair of Archimedes Screw hydropower turbines on the weir, which directly supply Windsor Castle with carbon-neutral electricity.
To accommodate the turbines, the 214 year old weir had to undergo extensive modifications, which involved removing two of the weir gates completely, modifying the existing apron, and extending the weir walls. At full capacity, the turbines can generate enough energy to power 300 homes.
