”There is no doubt that Plymouth is driving future national and international maritime technology outcomes in areas such as autonomy and smart ports when organisations like the Marine Business Technology Centre (MBTC) and Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) provide such effective support to ambitious companies like us. We look forward to making a positive impact and bringing more jobs to the South West.”
This news comes in with conjunction with other recent announcements of support provided to JET by key stakeholders in Plymouth, including:
- Collaboration with PML to drive development of marine connected technologies
