Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone (PDZ)

The Swansea Bay City Deal is a £1.3bn investment in 11 major projects across the Swansea Bay City Region – which is made up of Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire and Swansea.

Wave Hub Ltd are the Third-Party Managers of The Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone (PDZ), a 90KM2 area of sea leased from the Crown Estate. This is an exciting facility which is acting as a powerful catalyst in the growth of offshore renewables.

The PDZ is located between 15 and 21 kilometres off the south Pembrokeshire coast with water depths of between 50-62 metres. The site benefits from a 10 m/s wind resource and offers excellent grid connection possibilities, including a 132kV grid supply point located on the coast, along with world-class deep-water port facilities and support services.

The Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone has the potential to:

 • act as a catalyst in the establishment of a centre for low carbon, at sea, energy production in Wales;
 • stimulate the development of strategically enabling infrastructure to accelerate the growth of offshore energy off of the coast of Wales;
 • enable the deployment of current and future energy generating technologies, up to a capacity of 180MW.
