WELSH GOVERNMENT

Cymru/Wales has long been a strong supporter of ocean energy, recognising its role in meeting decarbonisation targets and enabling blue growth. Drawing on a rich maritime and industrial heritage, its dedicated demonstration sites in Anglesey and Pembrokeshire are at the forefront of wave and tidal energy technologies. These activities are underpinned by an extensive local supply chain, ensuring that the jobs and economic benefits of this growing sector are felt across the whole of Wales.

Among the Welsh companies taking part in the event are Bombora Wave Power, , Mainstay Marine Solutions, Menter Mon Morlais, Minesto, Marine Energy Wales, Marine Space, Gaia Hire, Ledwood Mechanical Engineering, Blackfish Engineering Design, Celtic Sea Power, Grafmarine, Cambrian Offshore and Intertek. This represents a broad cross-section of companies active in ocean energy and related sectors, who will meet and network with their Basque, European and international counterparts.

Minister for Economy said “The Welsh Government is determined to do all we can to build an economy based on the principles of fair work, sustainability, and the industries of the future. We’re committed to supporting the development of emerging marine energy technologies, as part of our wider efforts to establish Wales as a global leader in sustainable offshore renewable energy generation.
