PROJECT PROFILE: MORLAIS DEMONSTRATION ZONE
Anglesey, Wales, UK
Instream has secured access to a berth at the Morlais Demonstration Zone in Anglesey, Wales. The Morlais Demonstration Zone is one of several around the UK which have been leased out by The Crown Estate in a bid to encourage and accelerate tidal energy technology development.
The Anglesey Zone was selected as a marine energy hub for its tidal resource and Menter Môn, the Third Party Manager, will manage the Zone. The size of the zone and grid space allocated to Instream will accommodate 30MW of project capacity and will allow Instream to test an array of tidal power devices in a marine environment.
