Milford Haven Tidal Stream Power Feasibility Study
Milford Haven Tidal Stream Power Feasibility Sudy ' The Upper Reaches of Milford Haven have been identified as having several sites with the potential for tidal stream turbine arrays. These sites could produce significant clean, renewable, electrical energy with no audible noise, no or minimal visual impact and 100% predictability of supply. The project proposed by Swanturbines, is a full feasibility study to determine the energy output that could be achieved. This would include the positioning of turbines, turbine design, energy output, grid connection proposal, environmental scoping, estimates of annual energy production, carbon savings, cost estimates and financial payback time. The technical work will be performed by Swanturbines (a leading tidal turbine developer) and the project will be undertaken with the support of key local organizations including the Port Authority and National Park Authority. If the project identifies attractive financial and carbon savings then there is an opportunity for a further project to bring these to reality. Such a tidal array would represent a new, innovative and flag ship example of renewable energy for Milford Haven.
