The Welsh Government announced their continued support to marine energy in Wales following the award of €14.9 million of EU funding for the next phase of Minesto’s tidal energy scheme in Holyhead Deep.

Marine Energy Wales welcomes the recent announcements from Minesto, Morlais and ORE Catapult as positive indicators of the growing Welsh industry.
