RWE would be a partner in the South Wales Industrial Cluster, a consortium of some of Wales’ top industry, energy, infrastructure, law, academic and engineering organisations. Earlier this year the project received an allocation of grant funding for South Wales from Innovate UK that supported the first phase of the South Wales Industrial Cluster Roadmap and Deployment projects. Following on from this success, South Wales businesses and industry have joined forces to submit a public and private bid for a GBP 37 million project, to scope out a route to the decarbonisation of industry in the South Wales region. The bid will help the group to plan the acceleration of being net zero and create the UK’s first large scale carbon dioxide shipping industry at the same time.
The South Wales Industrial Clusters application is being led by Costain Oil, Gas and Process, and partners alongside RWE include; Associated British Ports, Capital Law, CR Plus, Industry Wales, Lanzatech, Lightsource bp, Milford Haven Port Authority, Progressive Energy,Shell, Simec Power, Tarmac, Tata Steel, The Port of Milford Haven, The University of South Wales, Valero Energy and Wales & West Utilities.
