Wave Hub Ltd has expanded its operations in Wales to support the development of the Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone

Wave Hub Ltd, the leaseholder for the Pembrokeshire wave energy site, recently recruited Madeline Cowley as its Project Manager to lead on the company’s activities in Wales including the feasibility study recently awarded to Black & Veatch. Madeline is based at Wave Hub Ltd’s new office in Pier House, Pembroke Dock.

LOCAL PRESENCE Wave Hub Ltd’s Managing Director, Claire Gibson, said: “I am delighted to have Madeline as an addition to the team. She brings a wealth of experience in developing renewable energy projects, having worked in this area for the past ten years. We understand how important it is to have a local presence when developing a site such as this and so Madeline is based in our new office in Pembroke Dock. We are also pleased to


have the opportunity to co-locate with other marine energy businesses in Pier House.”

LARGE SCALE FACILITY Madeline said: “I’m excited to be involved in this major new project. It’s an exciting time for Marine Energy in Wales. The feasibility study is the first step towards developing a world leading, large scale marine test facility in Pembrokeshire. This project will be a key element of the development of a marine industry hub in the local area.”

COLLABORATION Project Director of Marine Energy Wales, David Jones, said: “We are delighted to continue our collaborative approach to marine energy in Wales by welcoming Wave Hub in their recently acquired Welsh office. Wave Hub’s extensive

experience in developing and operating test sites will be of huge benefit in progressing the Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone and is another step forward for the sector in Wales.”

The feasibility study starts this month and the findings will be known early in 2018.
