Alstom has announced that it is planning to design and construct the generators for a £650 million, 250 MW tidal power plant in Swansea Bay, United Kingdom.

It signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work with Tidal Lagoon Power Ltd on “a series of tidal lagoons,” including the planned £650 million project.

This tidal power plant is expected to generate baseload power for up to 16 hours per day, meet Swansea’s entire electricity demand, and avoid over 200,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions for each year of its projected 100-year lifetime.
