The Hayle Coastal Communities Team project was established by the Hayle Harbour Advisory Committee in 2015 and has been funded by a DCLG Coastal Community grant. The HCCT team is made up of individuals and stakeholders who have a direct interest to support the future sustainable development of Hayle Harbour.

Hayle Harbour Works And Business Case – phase 1 report

This reports documents to outcome and findings of phase 1 of the HCCT project. This first phase has focused on the issues related to harbour navigation and access, with the aim to identify practical and acceptable solutions to restore and maintain water depth and safe navigation within the harbour and its channels, and to develop a business case to support investment.

Regen has expertise and detailed knowledge of the marine energy supply chain, including port facilities and infrastructure.

Over many years, we have carried out a number of individual studies on the region’s ports.

Examples of these projects include:

Plymouth South Yard Marine Industry Demand study

Following the signing over of part of Devonport Dock yard to Plymouth City Council, we carried out a market research study to identify areas of high growth and innovation in the marine industry and specific opportunities to support investment and jobs in the south west of England through the development of a “Marine Industries’ Production Campus” at Plymouth South Yard.

Bristol Port Dry Dock study

In 2014, we carried out an evaluation of potential market opportunities for Bristol Port, principally focused on the opportunities surrounding the Atlantic Array project and the assembly and manufacturing of tidal turbines.

North Devon

We have undertaken a series of studies in North Devon examining potential opportunities surrounding the Atlantic Array project, with a view to using the ports as operations and maintenance facilities.

Hayle Harbour Works

This project, funded by the Hayle Coastal Communities Team, focussed on identifying practical and acceptable solutions for restoring and maintaining water depth and safe navigation within the harbour and its channels, and to develop a business case to support investment.

During the summer of 2016, Regen were contracted to carry out the feasibility phase of Unstoppable Offshore, a project developed by 10:10.

10:10’s aim is to enable individuals and communities to invest in the flourishing offshore wind sector in UK waters, and to support the continued growth of our vibrant community energy sector.

Project duration: Summer 2016

During the feasibility phase, Regen was responsible for carrying out research to better understand the ownership structures and financial models within the UK offshore wind sector, to identify whether there was a strong case to encourage greater UK ownership of offshore wind and to engage with developers and potential financial partners.

Following the completion of this phase, a second stage of work is due to start in winter 2016, further investigating financial methods that could be used to meet 10:10’s project aim.

For the past five years, Regen SW, sponsored by Bristol City Council, has facilitated the popular Bristol Tidal Energy Forum, an industry group set up to support the development of tidal energy in the south west of England.

Project duration: (2011 – ongoing)

Although the forum started out with a south west focus, it has evolved over the past ten events, reaching an international audience. Since the first event, a combined total of over 500 delegates have attended from 11 different countries, with attendees from all parts of the supply chain coming together to network, do business and learn more about the burgeoning tidal energy sector. In between events, attendees are encouraged to continue networking through the Linkedin group.

Presentations from past events can be seen here.

The next forum will take place in the spring of 2017.

The team at Regen have excellent GIS capability, economic and financial modelling knowledge and analytical skills that, together with our industry knowledge and market insight, enables us to undertake work in areas such as resource assessments, marine project feasibility and financial modelling.

Examples of our work include:

  • Financial modelling commissioned to better understand the financial and commercial viability of deploying wave energy technology at both technology demonstration and first array scale. The objective of the study was to analyse, from the perspective of a project developer, the key financial drivers and sensitivities which will ultimately determine the viability of wave energy projects and the location/scale of the projects that could be developed.
  • A project pre-feasibility study for a technology developer, with the aim of finding a site   within the study area that could form the basis of a viable project and would then be taken forward to the next stage.  The next stage was planned to include more detailed costing and a full site survey assessing the resource and physical constraints of a tidal energy site in the south west.
  • Assessment of the boundary of a tidal energy site, carried out using GIS to assess the resource and other physical constraints, including water depth and bathymetry. This assessment was then considered alongside other constraints such as marine leisure and environmental designation.  Finally, financial modelling was carried out to evaluate the attractiveness of the site to potential commercial developers.
