THE RESOURCE

The Welsh coastline has some of the best wave and tidal stream resource in the world with potential to deliver 6.4 GW of installed capacity. Mainstay Marine Solutions are well placed in the Milford Haven Waterway to support businesses investing in this central hub for Marine Energy.

With the designation of two demonstration zones, seabed agreements in place for 3 separate tidal projects and a number of proposals for tidal range projects, Wales has the potential to become a world leader in the Marine Energy market.
