Alec Dixon, TLP’s Project Manager for the Marine and Civil Works, will be presenting at the Hereford & Worcester Institute of Engineering & Technology’s monthly guest talk.
The 320MW Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon will be the world’s first tidal lagoon power plant, built to capture the potential energy of the hyper-tidal range in the Severn Estuary. The project is made up of three main components; the marine structures (or sea wall) which impounds the water, the turbine and sluice structures which houses the turbines and sluice gates, and the 20MW bi-directional, triple regulated, bulb turbines. Alec’s talk will cover why Swansea Bay was chosen as the site, the layout and functioning of the lagoon, how it will be constructed, and how the turbines will be installed and commissioned.
This event is open to the public and takes place on Monday 30 October 2017 at 7:30pm, City Walls Road, Worcester, Worcestershire WR12AP.
