Pembroke Dock Marine
Pembroke Dock Marine will deliver a world-class marine energy and engineering hub on the deep water Milford Haven Waterway.
It is a collaboration between the Port of Milford Haven, Marine Energy Wales, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and Wave Hub and is one of the eleven £1.3bn Swansea Bay City Region Deal projects.
Pembroke Dock Marine will expand upon the region's existing high-skill cluster site, to develop and enhance the existing infrastructure and facilities to ensure this young industry can benefit from maximised operational efficiency and innovation opportunities.
Four key elements will be delivered:
- Redevelopment of operational space at Pembroke Port to increase efficiencies and reduce device development costs (Pembroke Dock Infrastructure)
- A Catapult research and innovation facility offering practical onsite test and learn opportunities (Marine Energy Engineering Centre of Excellence (MEECE))
- The creation of consented areas on the Waterway close to an operational base with enabling infrastructure for component and device testing (Marine Energy Test Area (META))
- The development of a 90km2 leased site for commercial deployment of 100MW capacity of full-scale wave and floating wind arrays (Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone).
Together these elements will help drive the commercialisation of marine energy technology whether tide, wave or floating wind enhancing the UK’s current industry proposition.
