The Skerries tidal array project was one of the exhibits at a special event in Parliament to celebrate Anglesey Day.
Organised by Albert Owen, Anglesey’s MP and a member of the Energy & Climate Change Select Committee, the event hosted a range of exhibitors including large companies such as National Grid, Horizon Nuclear and Stena Line, local businesses and voluntary organisations such as the Women’s Institute.
A good number of MPs and Peers attended the event, including David Jones, the Secretary of State for Wales, Andrew Lansley, the Leader of the House of the Commons and Owen Smith, the Shadow Secretary of State for Wales.
It was another opportunity for Siemens MCT to outline its plans for the Skerries tidal farm, located off the north west coast of Anglesey, which secured planning approval from the Welsh Government in February and at the same time funding from DECC’s Marine Energy Array Demonstration Fund.
