The design is based on conventional low head hydro practice but has special features to meet the constructional requirements of a single piece installation and the operational requirement of flood pumping. INTRODUCTION 1. The proposed Severn tidal power barrage would extend between Lavernock Point, West of Cardiff and Breen Down, West of Weston Super Mare, a distance of 16 Km. The barrage would contain approximately 200 x 40 MW turbine generators for power generation during the ebb tidal flow. The machines would also be capable of operating as motor pump units to increase the volume of impounded water at the end of the flood tide and hence increase the subsequent energy capture.

A 50m wide embankment crest is proposed to accommodate the road and transmission cables. The crest width would be increased locally where required for substations and other buildings; this can be done most economically by increasing the width of the sand core. The proposed crest level of +15m OD is sufficient to prevent overtopping. Spray protection can be provided for the road, if necessary, by providing a parapet wall on the seaward side. 40. The sections of embankment on the Welsh side and near Steep Holm will be founded on sands and gravels and stability presents no problems.
