Wyre Tidal Energy
Wyre Tidal Energy has been established to promote and deliver the construction of an Electric Bridge across the Wyre Estuary to harness the natural energy of the tidal flow to produce:
Renewable Electricity | Flood control for the river | Regeneration for North Fylde area
The River Wyre at its estuary, has one of the highest tidal ranges in the UK. The river is tidal for some 23 km and its natural shape, with its relatively narrow estuary makes it ideal to extract power from the tidal flow and generate green electricity with an “Electric Bridge” joining Fleetwood to Knott End.
The “Electric Bridge” will create a new pedestrian and cycle route between Fleetwood and Knott End, an access for emergency vehicles, a tourist attraction and a multi-use asset for the benefit of local communities.
This is a social enterprise. Our motivation is 100% altruistic and all those involved are unpaid. This project will be profitable and, once the investors’ capital and interest are repaid, all proceeds will be used for the benefit of the local community.
