Swansea Tendering Process Launched

Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay Plc will today begin the tendering process for three main operations and maintenance (O&M) contract packages to support the £1 billion Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon.

Having previously named General Electric and Andritz Hydro as preferred bidders to manage the operations and maintenance of the lagoon’s turbines and power generation facilities, Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay Plc now seeks Tier 1 contractors to take on the day-to-day running of the lagoon facilities outside of the main power generation plant.

The three contract packages being tendered are:

  • Lagoon Maintenance: including maintenance of the lagoon wall, turbine housing structure and mariculture park, as well as maintenance dredging;
  • Public Realm Infrastructure Maintenance: including maintenance of the visitor buildings; boating center and research laboratory; roads, car parks, landscaping and lighting; potable, foul and surface water system; 11kV supplies; IT & telecoms infrastructure;
  • General Facilities Management Services: facilities management for day-to-day operational activities such as public access control, security, transport, cleaning and waste disposal.

The creation of these packages brings a clear focus to the non-power generating assets which are needed to safely operate the world’s first tidal lagoon power plant and make the most of its potential for multi-functional use,” said Gerwyn Tumelty, Operations & Maintenance Manager for Tidal Lagoon Power. 

“The tendering process will ensure the right levels of competition, innovation and skill is sourced from the supply chain and will maximize local jobs for the future. This is just the beginning of a home-grown industry that expert analysis suggests has the potential to contribute £3.1 billion to UK GDP in each year of asset operation.”
