E.ON and Lunar start planning process for Welsh tidal

The planning process has started for one of the largest natural energy projects in the world, off the coast of south western Wales.

E.ON UK and tidal energy specialist Lunar Energy announced the 8MW tidal stream power project in March, and have now made a report on it to the Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.

If approved, it is anticipated that the plant would be operational by 2011.

The project would involve a field of 60-foot high turbines situated on the sea floor off Pembrokeshire which would harvest power from fast-moving deep sea tidal streams.
