Wave Hub Construction
Wave Hub is a groundbreaking renewable energy project in South West England that aims to create the world’s first large scale wave energy farm by constructing an electrical ‘socket’ on the seabed around 10 nautical miles off Hayle, on the Cornwall coast.
Providing a demonstrator facility that allows developers of wave energy devices to prove the operation of arrays of wave energy generation devices and, in so doing, generate 20MW of green energy.
Wave Hub will make sure Cornwall and South West England are well positioned to capture a position as world leader in wave energy.
This investment covers the costs associated with developing the Wave Hub which will provide a demonstration site for the development and testing of wave energy devices off the coast at St Ives Bay, Cornwall.
