Alun Griffiths Wins GBP 25 Mln Swansea Tidal Lagoon Job

Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay Plc has named Abergavenny-based Alun Griffiths Ltd as preferred bidder for one of the main civil engineering and construction packages for the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon.

The GBP 25 million contract covers ancillary civil engineering for the project’s public realm works. The scope of works includes the breakwater surface, roads, slipways, utilities and landscaping.

The contract will be delivered by a local workforce and materials will also be sourced locally. Griffiths has already awarded a design engineering contract to Atkins’ Swansea office and a landscape architect contract to TACP of Cardiff.

Following advanced works and value engineering, a fixed price contract will be signed later this year for the main build. Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay Plc has also run tenders for the project’s marine works package, the result of which will be announced shortly.

Further tenders for the construction of a Turbine Assembly Plant in Wales, and for the lagoon’s public realm and buildings work will proceed through the summer.
