MP welcomes Hendry Report into tidal power
Vale of Clwyd MP, Dr James Davies, has welcomed the Hendry Report into Tidal Power which has recommended the Government move forward with a tidal power programme and endorsed a pathfinder project for the first tidal lagoon at Swansea Bay.
The review wascommissioned by the UK Government in May 2016. A tidal lagoon is an area of sea impounded by a sea wall into which the tides can flow in and out to generate electricity via turbines. A spin-off benefit of such lagoons includes leisure and tourism, for example through watersports.
Commenting Dr Davies said, “This report is great news, it is effectively saying that developing a tidal power industry is viable and that early action should be taken via a pathfinder project. It is important because it recognises that large scale projects would follow at suitable sites around the UK. Initial project sites have been considered in the Colwyn Bay and Rhyl area so there is potential in years to come of significant economic benefits to our area and to the Vale of Clwyd.”
The Swansea project is likely to go on stream in the early 2020’s and following evaluation of the pathfinder, the first large scale site could be under development in the mid 2020’s.
