The 1,800 mega-watt Water Power Station (above) cost the taxpayer £M450. Building the much smaller nuclear reactor at Sizewell B (1,200 mega-watt)Cost the taxpayer £2.9 bn!!! Dinorwig's design life is 80 years. Sizewell Bs design life is 30 years!!!
Instead of wasting the taxpayers billions on a totally needless TARGET OF MASS DESTRUCTION at Sizewell B the
Head Of State could have built a safe water-power station, or a safe offshore wind farm, which would save the taxpayer Trillions in the future - simply by not producing totally needless nuclear waste. Can you wonder why Britain cant afford a decent old age pension when the Queen blocks the development of safe, cheap energy for no other reason than increasing her personal, $millions-per-hour, oil, gas & nuclear profits - to add to the obscene offshore fortune she inherited?
Water Power produces no pollution or waste, or Chernobyl's. As the price of fossil fuel go's through the roof. Water remains FREE. To produce the same amount of electricity using oil; Dinorwig would need 4,000-barrels-per-day!
Google today's oil price & uranium prices and ask yourself why Her Majesty's
Government hasn't built more safe, water power systems? Why is the Queen planning ten new potential Chernobyl's? If not for personal profit?
The Welsh Tourist Office recommends Dinorwig, The Gentle Giant In The Mountain Cave as a great day out for the family (kids love going underground).

Safe Power: Water Power Cheaper than Chips
A pumped hydroelectric storage system consists of one high reservoir and one low reservoir connected by tunnels containing the generating plant. Water is released from the upper reservoir to the lower reservoir through the turbines that drive the electricity generators. When production exceeds demand, water is pumped back up to the upper reservoir, ready to be released as needed.
This safe method of large-scale energy storage is the most reliable source of cheap power.There are many parts of Great Britain where this proven water power technology can be built completely underground. Dinorwig Water Power Station was one of several pumped-water-storage power stations envisaged in the 1960's. At least ten suitable Scots sites that could have been developed (and still could be) were rejected by Her Majesty's
Government. The Head of State decided power stations running on Gods own free rainwater would drastically reduce her personal oil, gas and uranium profits. And one wouldn't want that! Would one!?
PumThe next generation of pumped water storage power stations will be built entirely underground. All we need is a decent Head of State with more interest in the future of the country and the people than her obscene profits from oil, gas and nuclear pollution.

Dinorwig: Visitor's Welcome. Here you can see for yourself the safest method of making cheap electricity.
Dinorwig's six massive pump turbines are housed in Europe's largest man-made cavern, blasted out of forty-million-year-old Cambrian Slate. under the Welsh mountains. The pump turbines produce 317 Mega Watts each. Making a total 1,800 Mega Watts. Starting from a complete standstill each turbine takes just one minute to deliver 317 Mega Watts. Coal, oil and nuclear plants take days to start-up. Coal, oil and nuclear electricity pollute the planet. Pumped hydroelectric systems have little or no effect on the landscape.

Tucked away under the beautiful Snowdonia mountains, truth seekers will find Dinorwig Water Power Station. A fine example of how to produce safe, cheap, clean power. Dinorwig cost the taxpayer £M450. Opened in 1984, Dinorwig had returned its construction costs by 1995. No nuclear power station has ever, or will ever, return its cost because we never stop paying for storing the totally needless, totally fatal nuclear waste it produces.
To produce 1,800 mega-watts, as Dinorwig does, an oil-fired power station uses over 4,000 barrels of oil every 24 hours. Using rainwater instead of oil, SAVES Britainat least £200,000 per day - depending on the price of oil. Using uranium, instead of water, to produce 1,800 mega-watts. COSTS Britain £200,000 PER DAY Before we start paying for storing the fatal nuclear waste that no honest Head of State would produce in the first place.Bloomberg: Today's Oil & Uranium Prices

As the need for caverns and large underground spaces increases, Mott MacDonald is at the forefront. Our experience to date includes large span caverns for hydropower projects, storage facilities of all types, underground stations for metros and railways.
