Testing at Marine Energy Test Area

We host META (Marine Energy Test Area), Wales’ first and only real sea test centre, a world-leading facility and key asset for the marine energy sector.

Marine Energy Test Area

The goal of META is to “deploy, de-risk and develop” marine energy technology by testing at a series of pre-consented sites for wave, tidal and FLOW technology in and around the Milford Haven Waterway. 

Non-grid connected, META is ideal for early-stage developers, research and innovation. META is a keystone partner of the Pembroke Dock Marine project, which provides the facilities and services to establish Wales as a world class centre for marine energy and engineering.
