    Background: MANKIND'S LONG-STANDING DREAM OF UTILISING THE POWER OF THE ETERNAL TIDES WILL SHORTLY BECOME REALITY WHEN FRENCH CIVIL ENGINEERS AT ST.MALO COMPLETE A COLOSSAL PROJECT.

    THE RIVER RANGE BETWEEN ST.MALO AND DINARD, FORMERLY RUNNING IN TO THE SEA, HAS NOW BEEN DAMMED SO THAT IT FORMS A LARGE ARTIFICIAL LAKE.BETWEEN THIS LAKE AND THE SEA A DAM WALL IS BEING BUILT TO HOUSE THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC GENERATING TURBINES.THE HARBOUR OF ST.MALO WILL STILL BE USABLE SINCE LOCK GATES WILL ALLOW SHIPS TO PASS THROUGH THE DAM.

    AS THE ATLANTIC TIDES ROLL IN, THEY WILL GENERATE 554 MILLION KWH WHICH WILL RISE LATER TO 25,000 MILLION KWH WHEN A LARGER INSTALLATION FOLLOWS THE PIONEER PLANT.
