Leask Marine has joined the Pembrokeshire’s Marine Energy Hub, bringing over 10 years of experience supporting the marine renewables industry.

The Marine Energy Hub is located in Pembroke Dock and was set up as a joint initiative between Marine Energy Pembrokeshire, Marine Energy Wales and the Port of Milford Haven.

Leask Marine is an Orkney-based marine renewables services provider, renowned for its specialized works in strong currents, high tidal zones and remote locations.

Welcoming the news, Welsh Economy Secretary, Ken Skates, said: “The Marine Energy Hub is making quite an impact and attracting a cluster of businesses and organizations that can help drive forward this exciting sector in Wales. Leask Marine is a welcome addition with a wealth of experience having supported many of the world’s leading marine energy developers.”

David Jones, Project Director of Marine Energy Wales, added: “An experienced supply chain is essential for the success of the industry and will be crucial in lowering the cost of energy.”

The hub is located on the doorstep of one of the world’s best marine energy resources, and offers a dynamic worksite where marine energy companies can come together and share space, facilities and knowledge – in order to unlock the sector’s full potential.
