VISITORS to Milford Haven Heritage and Maritime Museum will now be able to take a closer look at local industry thanks to a generous donation from gas giant South Hook LNG.
Museum trustees recently launched a new exhibit from South Hook LNG that details the liquefied natural gas (LNG) ‘food chain’ - from extraction of natural gas in the Arabian Gulf, to liquefaction, shipping and regasification in Milford Haven.
Attended by the Mayor of Milford Haven, Cllr Yvonne Southwell, members of Milford Haven Town Council and South Hook LNG’s Community Liaison Group, the event was an opportunity to celebrate the new exhibit, which gives a further dimension to the story of the Port’s industrial history.
Featuring a detailed model of an LNG Carrier and several illustrated panels, it is hoped the exhibit will be an educational, useful and interesting resource for locals, visitors and schoolchildren.
The Port of Milford Haven is the UK’s third largest port and plays a critical role in the UK’s energy landscape, producing around a fifth of the energy needed to fuel the country.
The museum is open Monday to Saturday, from 10.30am until 3.30pm, until the end of the October half-term.
Entry is £2 for adults, with concessions available, and schools in Pembrokeshire can visit for free.
