Merioneth. FESTINIOG QUARRIES ELECTRI- FIED. The formal switching of the new electric plant at the Oakeley Quarries, Blaenau Fes- tiniog, took place on Wednesday, the cere- mony being performed by Mr W. E. Oak- isley." The electric power, respresenting 1,930 h.p., is said to be the largest of its kind in Great Britain. It is generated at Cwm Dyli by means of water taken from Llyn Llydaw on Snowdolj. The energy is conveyed to the quarries by means of an aerial transmission line, which goes over the mountainous country between the power station and Roman Bridge Railway Station in nearly a bee-line, and at that point turns and follows the road to Festiniog into the quarries. The current is supplied from Cwm Dvli at 10,000 volts, but with a view to safe handling by unskilled men if necessary the pressure for working the quarries has been transformed to 500 volts. The whole of the plant worked without a, hitch, and the direc- tors expressed complete satisfaction.
