Welsh Secretary at Technium

Welsh Secretary Peter Hain was a visitor to Pembrokeshire Technium on Tuesday.

Mr Hain - who was accompanied by Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire MP Nick Ainger - met representatives from a number of energy companies and viewed the Technium facilities in Pembroke Dock, including Swansea University's Climate Change Research Centre.

Pembrokeshire is attracting significant interest from companies interested in renewable energy generation.

Companies present included Tidal Energy Limited (TEL) which has set up a scale model of a tidal energy device which they plan to test in Ramsey Sound.
