Marine Energy Test Area (META)

Marine Energy Wales 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.

These proposed sites are for short-term testing only, so installations will be temporary.

META will provide a stepping stone between tank testing and installing devices further offshore, and will support ambitions for the UK to continue to play a global leading role in marine renewable energy.

Public Exhibitions

A second round of public exhibitions 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.
