Agratas wish to notify people via their Whatsapp channel that test piling work will be starting at their site on Tuesday 26 March. There will also be posters put up at the site about the work. 

The WhatsApp post includes their contact details should people wish to get in touch.

For those unable to access WhatsApp the latest update is set out below

👋 On-site update


We have been working to prepare our site for the construction of our battery facility. As part of this, we wanted to let you know that we will begin test piling on 26th March.  


What is test piling?


A pile is a long cylinder pushed into the ground to act as structural support. Test piling will help us evaluate the structural safety before any building begins.


The activity should take around three weeks to complete, and we will use the findings to design the final piles that will support our battery facility. 


What does this mean for you?


You might notice increased activity at the site. Here is the key information you should be aware of:


🕒 Test piling will take place for short periods throughout the day (08:00-18:00), Monday to Friday


👂 We’re taking measures to keep noise to a minimum and to limit any excess dust on site by using water tankers if conditions are dry


🚚 Deliveries of our piles to the site will take place 2-3 times per day


What happens next?


We will begin piling once we have completed the test piling and designed the final piles for our site. We aim to start piling later this Spring and will share an update closer to the time.


These works are a crucial step towards the construction of our facility. If you have any questions, please get in touch with a member of the team at
