tidal power plant
Plant that harnesses tidal power (the motion of the rising and falling tides) to produce electric power.
Movable vertical panel that controls the rate of flow of the water between the sea and the basin.
The devices (such as transformers and changeover switches) that increase the voltage of the electricity and carry it to the network.
Area in which water is stored at high tide; the basin empties out through the penstocks at low tide.
Part of the dam made up mainly of rocky material; it is built between the plant and the operating dam to separate the basin from the sea.
Part of the dam housing bulb units that are powered by the rise and fall of the sea to produce electricity.
Structure with doors and gates that is built between the sea and the basin; it allows boats to pass from one level to the other.
