Business ready infrastructure in Snowdonia
The Zone’s Trawsfynydd site includes a local grid infrastructure, which – with other nearby substations - delivers a resilient power supply from local wind and hydro-electric installations, in addition to power from the National Grid.
The 485.6ha (1199 acre) lake on the site feeds the nearby Maentwrog hydro-electric station which generates 30MW of power, and Snowdonia is home to one of Europe’s largest underground pumped storage power stations – Electric Mountain.
At Llanbedr, a comprehensive masterplan is in place to guide phased delivery, with the first phase infrastructure completed, comprising refurbishment of the Air Traffic Control centre, fuel farm and installation of ultrafast broadband.
Our great connections will help you reach customers and suppliers across the UK and beyond. The main A470 trunk road linking north and south Wales runs close to the Zone and Anglesey Airport gives you a 40-minute hop to Cardiff, while Liverpool Airport is just two hours away.
Good rail access via the nearby Cambrian Coast Mainline connects to the major conurbations and markets of the Midlands, supported by good arterial road links east to Birmingham.
The Zone has its own helipad, plus its own railhead, directly linking to the north Wales rail network, and to Deeside Enterprise Zone, a hub for advanced manufacturing. And it’s just 88.5km (55 miles) to the internationally strategic gateway port at Holyhead and a 90-minute journey-time to Ireland for both freight and passengers.
