Project Description


Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon will be the world’s first tidal lagoon power plant. The project was awarded a Development Consent Order in 2015 and is primed for construction. It will comprise 16 hydro turbines, a 9.5km breakwater wall, generating electricity for 155,000 homes for the next 120 years. The 320MW pathfinder project provides a scalable blueprint for our program, opening up the option of a fleet of larger UK tidal lagoons to generate renewable electricity at a scale and low cost not seen before.
