New UK deepsea box port would be one of world’s largest tidal-powered schemes

Deep sea box ports are a good idea. They don’t take up valuable land space, and they don’t pollute regions where people live. They’re cheaper to build, and can be connected by rail and truck to land.

My colleague Alf Baird recommended these years ago.

This idea for one has an additional advantage– it will be powered by tidal flows, which can generate the electricity to run the port in a green fashion. Done properly, it might also power lots of homes or industrial spaces in the adjacent area.

I hope they get the investment funds and find some customers willing to commit.
