Tyne Hydro

Great minds think alike – and Independently!

It’s just fascinating that the potential for hydro-electric power generation on the Tyne and it’s tributaries has occured to so many people and groups simultaneously. It will not surprise me if in the next few years we find a large number of sites being developed everywhere in the catchement area.

At a recent meeting at OneNE substantial interest was expressed and plans were laid to take matters further.

The range of options go from installations with outputs of a handful of kilowatts to major civil engineering works contributing many megawatts. A number of big names have also been proposed as possible contractors.

More meetings are planned.
