Natural Energy Wyre is a company that’s serious about creating the best tidal energy station we can, which is why we have brought aboard stakeholders such as Hyder Consulting, whose skills and expertise are second to none in the industry.

Hyder Consulting has been operating in the design and management of projects in the environmental and utility sectors for almost 200 years. With more than 4,000 employees, they are a truly global enterprise, responsible for world-famous projects such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Otto Beit Bridge, the Algonquin Radio Observatory, and many lots on the London 2012 Olympic Games, the third such Olympics to which they contributed.

With such incredible achievements, there was never a doubt that Hyder Consulting is an ideal match for the Wyre Eco-THEP (Tidal Hydro Energy Plant). However, they also possess a prior understanding of the River Wyre itself, making them a natural fit.

As the company itself says, ‘the world’s energy needs are changing—with increasing focus on the safety, security, sustainability and cost’. Hyder Consulting is fully ready to back renewable generation, which is why they are as enthusiastic as we are when it comes to tidal energy.
