Marine Hub Cornwall – set up to help grow the marine industry in the county and to promote its marine capabilities – has formally agreed a new collaboration with Marine Energy Wales.
The two organisations have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on areas of common interest and to share their knowledge and expertise.
This is in line with a global trend for more cross-regional collaborations, in order to get maximum benefit from the available resources and to develop new technologies more quickly than might otherwise be possible.
Marine Hub Cornwall operations director, Matt Hodson, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to formalise this arrangement with Marine Energy Wales and we look forward to working very closely with their team in the years ahead. We both want to see the marine renewable energy sectors developed to their full potential in our respective regions. This will not only generate new jobs but also help to create the low carbon economy of the future. This new collaboration is an exciting step towards achieving those goals.”
