The Marine Zone has been identified by the Crown Estate in consultation with statutory and other stakeholders as being a suitable location for the installation of marine energy devices in the short to medium term. This is founded on the Zone’s good tidal current resource and low wave regime.
M-SParc’s vision is to drive knowledge based science linked to research expertise. This will be achieved by stimulating an entrepreneurial culture linking innovation in key sectors such as low carbon energy the environment and ICT.

Grŵp Llandrillo Menai has outline plans for a major development and investment for Coleg Menai’s Llangefni Campus. The intention is to extend the existing Campus to develop a specialist Technology and Energy Centre serving Ynys Môn and Gwynedd, and also to create Business Incubator Units to support the wider economy.

Wylfa Newydd is the name of the Horizon Nuclear Power project to develop a new nuclear power station adjacent to the former Magnox Wylfa Power Station on Anglesey. Their projects on Anglesey will create up to 1,000 permanent jobs with a construction workforce of around 4,000 workers for the majority of the time, potentially reaching 8,500 workers during peak periods during the main construction phase in the early 2020s. This investment aims to boost the country’s low carbon power supplies and help develop local skills and new prospects for Welsh suppliers.
