Excavation and foundations for Whessoe
site fabrication facility
Very little flat land available
Fabrication shop will be 300m Long
It is possible to reverse the trend and win export work
Market place is difficult and competitive
UK no longer regarded the leader in Hydropower
Financial support no longer available from UKTI
Websites provide access to World Market
Essential to get out and meet people
BHA provide a very cost effective way to do it
