At the very least, the Swansea Bay tidal generation
project, recently rejected by planners, should be given the green light.
Simec Atlantis claim the AR2000 tidal generation
system is expected to be the largest and most powerful single-axis turbine in the world.

Having acquired Tidal Generation
Ltd (TGL) in 2013, it leverages over 10 years of cumulated knowledge and experience to bring customer-oriented proven, reliable and efficient technologies, with particular attention to operation and maintenance, to the market.
"With proper programming, the FloWave tank can be made to accurately replicate at scale any point on the UK continental shelf, and almost all of the existing and planned wave and tidal generation
sites around the world.
The Orkney Islands' grid was the first network in the world to link an energy storage system with the integrated output from solar, wave, wind and tidal generation
. Smarter Grid Solutions (SGS) ran the project, introducing intelligent control software and hardware to control energy generation more efficiently, and were able to add an extra 20MW to the system at a cost of Au500,000 instead of a subsea cable, which would have cost Au30,000,000.
Wind turbines, tidal generation
, etc, only produce electricity.
Under the agreement, facilities will be provided at Pembroke Port for the storage, assembly, deployment and maintenance of the DeltaStream tidal generation
unit and for an operations centre during the demonstration programme.

Limited (TGL, now rebranded Alstom) have worked closely together to achieve 'C-Design Assessment' certification for Alstom's full-scale 1MW tidal turbine.
30 January 2013 - French power and transportation major Alstom SA (EPA:ALO) today said it had wrapped up a deal to take over Bristol-based tidal stream turbines manufacturer Tidal Generation
Limited (TGL) from UK power systems group Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc (LON:RR).
The product portfolio includes the world's largest range of subsea remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) such as work-class and specialist trenching vehicles; as well as tidal generation
devices and subsea mining equipment.
