GMB Hails Wales’ Tidal Energy Project

GMB, the union for engineering construction and energy workers, commented on the unveiling of the first full-scale tidal energy generator in Ramsey Sound, off St Davids Head, Pembrokeshire in Wales.

Phil Whitehurst, GMB National Officer for Engineering Construction, said: “This project is a very welcome boost for the Welsh economy. It opens up a way forward to generate green and renewable energy using reliable tidal power.

It is good news for Pembrokeshire and Welsh labour force and for the supply chain. It is also good news for the UK Engineering Construction Industry as a whole.”
