Menter Môn Morlais Ltd

Menter Môn is a not for profit social enterprise that delivers projects and services across North West Wales. It has a Board of Directors who give their time on a voluntary basis to provide the company with strategic support. Menter Môn seeks to add value to the region’s resources for the benefit of local inhabitants. Among these resources are the natural and built environment, heritage, language, people and agricultural produce.
Morlais is Menter Môn's tidal stream energy project. It manages an area of 35Km² of the seabed near Ynys Cybi (Holy Island), Ynys Môn (Anglesey). The scheme has the potential to generate up to 240MW of low carbon clean electricity. In 2014, the Crown Estate designated this area of seabed off the coast of Ynys Cybi as the West Anglesey Demonstration Zone for tidal energy. This is the area we now know as Morlais. The intention in designating the demonstration zone was to encourage the growth of the tidal energy sector. Menter Môn secured the lease at that time, beating competition from all over the world.

The aim is to play a role in tackling climate change while delivering economic and social benefit to local communities and the wider region. As a local company this has been central to our vision from the outset.
