Marine renewables group launched


A membership group has been launched to represent businesses that supply the growing offshore marine renewable industry.

A launch event in Saltash saw speakers from A&P Group, Mojo Maritime and Insight Marine Projects highlight the benefits that the Marine Offshore Renewables (MOR) group could bring.

It explained how the MOR group fits into the wider industry and the new South West Marine Energy Park (SWMEP).

MOR is a sub-group within Cornwall Marine Network (CMN) and was formed by a network of like-minded businesses that are currently providing services to the marine and offshore renewable industry around the UK and overseas.

The aim of the group is to provide a unified supply chain voice from the far south west, encourage the development of offshore renewable energy within its waters, and to provide project developers and other clients with an integrated local supply chain all within one single professional brand.

MOR group chairman Steve Roue said: “It is great to see some of the country’s leading specialists in the renewable energy industry coming together to promote both an industry and a region, whilst providing developers and operators an experienced supply chain which can work together to provide integrated services for the installation and maintenance of their projects.”
