Marine Hub Cornwall
A world of marine technology in one outstanding region

Cornwall Region

Internationally recognised as a leading region for the maritime industry

Cornwall's history has been shaped by the oceans. With over 400 miles of coastline, no town or village in the region is more than 20 miles from the sea.

For centuries, Cornwall's ports and harbours have played a leading role in the international trade of goods and services. Cornwall has also been a major centre for fishing fleets, sailing, boat building and commercial shipping development.

Cornwall accounts for 8% of UK marine industry turnover and an impressive 1 in 7 of all marine jobs in the country. It is estimated that the marine industry in Cornwall is worth £500 million per annum and that it supports more than 14,000 jobs.

With its unique heritage, Cornwall has created a powerful pool of highly skilled people in marine engineering and marine technology. With its easy access to deep waters and outstanding wave resources, Cornwall is now playing a prominent part in the development of new technologies for the marine renewable energy sector.

Innovative marine technology businesses from all over the world continue to be drawn to Cornwall for its outstanding location, superb natural resources, great facilities and talented workforce.
