Marine Energy Test Area Second Round of Public Exhibition

Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum, through its ‘Marine Energy Wales’ programme, is developing a Marine Energy Test Area (META) project in and around the Milford Haven Waterway.

Sites for testing wave and tidal devices, along with other marine energy equipment, are proposed near Pembroke Port, Warrior Way, Dale and north of Freshwater West.

Following on from the initial consultations held around the peninsula we are now hosting a second round of public exhibitions. We received feedback from stakeholders and the community at the last round held across five events in December 2018. This feedback has helped to shape the project and the environmental impact assessment has now been carried out.

These events are being hosted to provide an update on progress which has been made on the project in 2019. Members of the META development team will be present to answer questions, along with Pembroke Dock-based wave energy developer Bombora. If you have an interest in the Milford Haven Waterway and surrounding areas, or in marine renewable energy, we encourage you to attend one of our drop-in events to find out more about the project.
