Pembrokeshire hosts development of Ocean Wave Power

Wave technology company Wave-Trinity has chosen Pembrokeshire to develop and test a new device called the Ocean Wave Rower, as part of a new £5.8 million energy project.

The project is expected to span over two years and has received £4 million of EU funding, aimed at generating clean energy by capturing the natural motion of sea waves.

The new initiative is set to lead to the creation of jobs in engineering and operations with Wave-tricity, as well as opportunities for local businesses.

Matthew Fairclough-Kay, managing director at Wave-tricity, said: "Everyone on the team is looking forward to starting operations in Pembrokeshire and bringing the prospect of clean wave energy a step closer to commercial
success."
