Swansea Bay £850m tidal lagoon plan submitted

From BBC

Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay Ltd says it is the first step towards developing technology that could meet 10% of the UK's electricity needs from the tides.

The six-mile-long U-shaped seawall will go from Swansea docks to near Swansea University's new Fabian Way campus.

It would take two years to build and create 1,850 construction jobs.

There would also be 60 long-term operational jobs with up to another 90 linked to visitor spending and it is hoped it could be operating by 2018.
