Maritime and Energy

Sci-Tech Daresbury

The Wirral Peninsula, a short drive through the Mersey Road Tunnel, has become a leading international centre for Renewables, Marine and Civil Nuclear Engineering.  This tour will be focused around Wirral Waters, the largest regeneration project in the UK by consented floor area.

Planned development at Wirral Waters includes the development of the Maritime Knowledge Hub (a centre for maritime skills, research and innovation) and MEA Park – a nationally significant waterside manufacturing, R&D and skills campus totalling more than 1million square feet of floor space.

On this tour you will learn of the opportunities in the region for businesses engaged in the fields of new energy technologies and environmental research, including offshore wind. Liverpool Bay is home to the world’s second largest concentration of wind farms and the first ever commercial deployment of the world’s largest wind turbines.

You will also visit some of the area’s ultra-advanced engineering & design companies who have made Liverpool City Region their natural base, with a focus on latest technologies in modular construction.

The tour is based around facilities approximately 20 minutes from Liverpool City Centre.
