FOCUS ON CORNWALL


CORNWALL’S GLOBAL AMBITION


For over a decade Cornwall and the South West of England have been at the forefront of the marine energy sector and it remains a growth priority


To date £170m has been invested in infrastructure, research and supply chain activity and this investment has helped position Cornwall as one of the world’s leading regions in marine renewables.


WHAT DOES CORNWALL OFFER?


Cornwall combines world-class physical assets with R&D expertise, a hugely experienced supply chain and some of the best wave and offshore wind resources in the UK. Key infrastructure includes Wave Hub, the world’s most capable and flexible offshore energy site with a 48MW grid connection and capacity for both wave and floating wind energy devices.


FAB TEST


Fab Test is a pre-consented nearshore two square kilometre facility in Falmouth Bay which enables wave energy device developers to test components, concepts or full scale devices in a moderate wave climate with excellent access to nearby port infrastructure.

Fab Test is complemented by the University of Exeter’s South West Mooring Test Facility in Falmouth Bay, which is designed to test a variety of mooring arrangements in real sea conditions and its Dynamic Marine Components Test Facility at Falmouth Docks, which replicates the forces and motions that components are subjected to in offshore applications.


PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY


Plymouth University offers one of the best tank testing facilities in the UK through its Coastal, Ocean and Sediment Transport (COAST) Laboratory. This is a flexible facility with the capability to generate short and long-crested waves in combination with currents at any relative direction, sediment dynamics, tidal effects and wind.


MARINE TECHNOLOGY SUPPLY CHAIN


Cornwall has at least 50 businesses involved in the marine technology supply chain, many operating around the world and has strong sector networks including

Recent announcements from Carnegie Clean Energy and GWave are proof that Cornwall has a globally competitive offer. Next year Cornwall’s Wave Hub will see deployment of Carnegie’s 1MW CETO 6 unit, followed by a proposed 15MW commercial array. The Australian company is being supported by a £9.5m grant from the European Regional Development Fund thorough Cornwall’s EU Growth Programme. Also in 2018, American wave energy developer GWave will deploy its 9MW Power Generation Vessel at Wave Hub and has been conducting detailed tests of its mooring system at Plymouth University’s COAST laboratory.


the Marine Offshore Renewables Group and the Cornwall Marine Network. All of this is supported by ports and harbours on both north and south coasts. Developing the marine energy sector is a strategic priority for the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership and the region’s EU-funded Growth Programme.
