Tidal Lagoon Power, the developer of the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon, has announced that British industrial components and expertise will be at the heart of turbine production, following the appointment of General Electric and Andritz Hydro as preferred bidders to the £1 billion project.

The two companies, bidding together for the contract to supply sixteen bidirectional turbines to the world’s first tidal lagoon power plant, have committed to a majority of British large turbine components, to British generators, and to the operation of a dockside Turbine Assembly Plant in Wales.
