6 GW Tidal Power Dam Proposed off the Dutch Coast

Cobouw, a more than a century old daily newspaper for the Dutch building industry, proposes a dam perpendicular to the coast of 40 km length that could generate 6 GW of electricity, using 200 turbines, exploiting dynamic tidal power and would cover 1/3 of total Dutch electricity needs. Cost: 15 billion euro, payback time: 15 years. Shallowest depth Northsea: 19 m, 100 km from IJmuiden.
