Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone in Pembrokeshire was established on the basis of the area’s existing and potential energy sites and related industry base.
Home to the UK’s busiest energy port, Milford Haven, the Zone offers an attractive location for energy companies with its excellent access to energy infrastructure, established supply chain and distribution infrastructure, skilled workforce, and network of universities with expertise in a range of energy-related fields.
The Zone is becoming a fast-growing hub for some of the world’s renewable energy giants, creating opportunities for employment and business through major low carbon energy projects. In particular it is gaining an increasing marine energy and hydrogen production focus on the basis of its location adjacent to the Celtic Sea offshore wind development zones and natural assets.
A wave energy demonstration zone has been established 13km (8 miles) off the Pembrokeshire coast, with the potential to support the demonstration of wave arrays with a generating capacity of up to 30MW for each project.
Today, diversity and innovation characterise the range of local businesses and the Zone is particularly keen to support companies in other sectors to locate or expand here, too.
The UK’s only coastal National Park, Pembrokeshire is a well-known as a tourist destination, with our stunning coast and countryside providing opportunities to join a thriving tourism industry and a rich environment for all sorts of food producers.
Alongside new and established energy, food and tourism businesses and their extensive supply chains, ICT and manufacturing firms are also flourishing in Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone.
This diverse landscape means that the Zone has a wide variety of areas and sites, some in public and some in private ownership, offering a variety of accommodation and development opportunities.
