Leave a Comment

Plans to create a new tech cluster in Ebbw Vale are being driven forward by investment in 5G technology, a new campus for cyber testing and innovative business accommodation, a recent news report in the local business media has been able to suggest.

Through a new 5G Wales Unlocked project, the Welsh Government is bringing 5G mobile connectivity to support pilots across education, transport, tourism and farming in Blaenau Gwent and neighbouring Monmouthshire.

The Welsh Government has also confirmed it is working with Thales UK on ResilientWorks, a £7m project in Blaenau Gwent to establish a campus for testing cyber security for connected and autonomous vehicles and energy infrastructure.

The new campus will include research laboratories, a test track and a model street complex that start-ups, SMEs, international companies and governments can all use to test and build trust in vital new technology.

In addition the Welsh Government and Blaenau Gwent Council are working together to bring forward new accommodation for businesses in the area. This includes a new project The Box, supported by the Welsh Government’s Transforming Towns programme, which will see a new hub of flexible office premises custom designed and transformed from shipping containers on the former Works site in Ebbw Vale.
