Reason's behind the Tidal Lagoon
A £650 million investment that gives Swansea the opportunity to take the lead in the tidal industry for the UK as we work towards driving a critical change in the UK’s energy mix with low cost, low carbon electricity sources that are sustainable long-term.
A fantastic opportunity for Wales to return to its roots as a hub for power generation by making use of a wonderful natural resource, replacing the dying steel and coal industries while providing local supply chain opportunities and jobs for local people.
The world’s first tidal lagoon based power plant using proven technology, capable of generating predictable, baseload electricity 16 hours a day using both ebb and flood tides.
A 250 MW power plant that will offer predictable zero carbon electricity for 100 years. We’ll save over 200,000 tonnes of CO2 and generate enough electricity for the 107,000 homes in the Swansea area each year.
A physical icon that will provide an abundance of leisure and tourism opportunities for both the local community and wider area as a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy.
Some facts about the proposed lagoon development...
Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon will be capable of generating over 400,000MWh/year... enough to supply over 100,000 homes, or Swansea’s entire domestic electricity use.
Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon will save over 200,000 tonnes CO2 every year... that’s equivalent to taking 40-50,000 cars off UK roads each year.
