Marine Hub Cornwall has launched a new website to showcase the region’s resources and expertise for marine technology businesses.

The new website gives full details on the range and depth of Marine Hub Cornwall’s offer, including a detailed specification of the premises available in the Enterprise Zone and a range of case studies from marine technology companies who are already operating from the region.

The aim of Marine Hub Cornwall is to encourage marine businesses to locate to the area, as well as to help businesses already based in Cornwall to grow to their full potential.

Marine-i, an EU-funded collaborative project set up to boost marine innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, is working together with Marine Hub Cornwall to promote the marinetech in the region.

It is estimated that the marine industry in Cornwall is already worth £500 million per year and that it supports more than 14,000 jobs, according to Marine-i.

Matt Hodson, Operations Director at Marine Hub Cornwall, said: “With Marine Hub Cornwall, we now believe we can offer a complete package to marine technology businesses who are looking for the perfect place to grow their operation successfully.”

The recent creation of a Marine Enterprise Zone within Cornwall has made a mix of development land and purpose-built industrial and office space available to businesses for immediate occupation and at very competitive rates.

With over 400 miles of coastline, Cornwall also offers easy access to deep waters for the trialling of new marine technologies, Marine-i noted.
