Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone

A new wave energy site located off the South Pembrokeshire coastline.

A powerful catalyst.

Wave Hub Ltd are the Third-Party Managers of The Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone (PDZ), a 90KM2 area of sea leased from the Crown Estate. This is an exciting facility which is acting as a powerful catalyst in the growth of offshore renewables.

Wave Hub Ltd has an office in the Marine Energy Hub in Pembroke Dock and is working in partnership with Milford Haven Port Authority, Offshore Renewables Energy Catapult and Marine Energy Wales

The PDZ is located between 15 and 21 kilometres off the south Pembrokeshire coast with water depths of between 50-62 metres. The site benefits from a 10 m/s wind resource and offers excellent grid connection possibilities, including a 132kV grid supply point located on the coast, along with world-class deep-water port facilities and support services.

The Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone has the potential to:

  • act as a catalyst in the establishment of a centre for low carbon, at sea, energy production in Wales;
  • stimulate the development of strategically enabling infrastructure to accelerate the growth of offshore energy off of the coast of Wales;
  • enable the deployment of current and future energy generating technologies, up to a capacity of 180MW.
