Having secured permission to build the world’s first energy-generating tidal lagoon in Swansea Bay, Wales, Tidal Lagoon Power is proud to be Gold Sponsors of the Marine Energy Wales Annual Conference 2017. Born in Wales, the ground-breaking pathfinder project, Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay, proposes 320MW installed capacity and 2,232 construction and manufacturing jobs – an iconic project that provides a scalable blueprint for a new, global industry, helping to position Wales as global leaders in marine energy.
With €100.4 million of EU Structural Funds prioritised for marine energy in Wales, two array scale Demonstration Zones, seabed agreements in place for 3 separate tidal projects and a number of proposals for tidal range projects, Wales has the potential to be a world-leader in the marine energy market.
Building on 7 successful years of Marine Energy Pembrokeshire seminars, this year’s conference marks the launch of Marine Energy Wales, a partnership working in collaboration to establish Wales as a centre of excellence for sustainable marine energy generation. The vision is to create a thriving and diverse sustainable marine energy industry, making a significant contribution to a low carbon economy.
Alec Dixon, Project Manager for the Marine and Civil Works will give an update of where we are as we progress towards construction including procurement and design and construction developments.
Graham Hillier, Managing Director of Development, will present on ‘Delivering on the Vision’.
