Support & Facilities

In Pembrokeshire there is a diverse energy supply chain specialising in marine energy, petrochemicals, liquified natural gas, manufacturing and marine operations.

Secure your Berth

We are aiming for these sites to be open in 2020!

META’s operational test sites are still under development and the appropriate consents and licenses are currently being pursued.

Live marine data

We have a range of live marine and tidal data available from several sources in our testing areas.

Other Phase 2 Test Sites

META Phase 2 offers sites for accessible, non- grid connected, real- sea testing. The sites are located within or adjacent to the Milford Haven Waterway so enables lessons to be learnt quickly and cheaply.

The Marine Energy Test Area project provides a stepping stone from tank testing to commercial projects, supporting ambitions for the UK to continue to play a global leading role in marine renewable energy.
