Why choose us

A thriving base for a variety of sectors

Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone in Pembrokeshire is focused around existing and potential new energy sites, building on the area’s established industry base. The Zone is gaining a marine energy focus, given its deep sea port facilities combined with marine conditions suited to wave and tidal stream technologies.

Today, however, 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. Alongside new and established energy businesses and their extensive supply chains, food and tourism businesses, life sciences, ICT and manufacturing firms are flourishing.

Why choose us

A Diverse Economy

Energy, food and tourism continue to thrive and around 20% of the UK’s energy is supplied from here. Milford Haven’s deep water port represents a strategically important link from the UK to the rest of the world. Our longstanding heritage means we have a strong, local engineering supply chain that’s now rapidly gaining experience in the emerging wave and tidal industry.

The Zone is encouraging non-energy sectors including ICT, life sciences and high-precision manufacturing. New markets are opening up in our established food and tourism sectors, with massive growth being seen at the moment, for example, in the international cruising sector.
