Planning consent for Swansea Bay tidal lagoon

Following a recommendation from the Planning Inspectorate, the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Amber Rudd, has given consent to the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon development project. In the Severn Estuary the tidal range is among the largest in the world; a difference which Tidal Lagoon (Swansea Bay) plc plan to exploit using 16 submersed turbines to produce 320MW of clean reliable power. We are an engineering advisor to the project and, working for Atkins, have provided the outline design for the eight sluice gates, stoplogs and associated hoisting gear.
