A feasibility study is to consider plans for an offshore wave energy site off Pembrokeshire.

The Pembrokeshire Demonstration Zone study, by Black & Veatch, will take nine months and look at the site's commercial viability.

Wave Hub secured nearly £325,000 from the Welsh Government for the project.

It forms part of the Pembroke Dock Marine project to develop a centre for marine energy development, fabrication, testing and deployment.
