Future Ports: Newport

Towards a new growth pathway for the port and city

This paper sets out our vision for ABP Newport.

We think that ABP Newport has a really exciting future. This is a time of change which will see us build our classic port role, whilst blending in modern industrial innovations that will help Wales move towards net zero.

By 2040, our vision is of a highly efficient zero-carbon port integrated with a new ‘clean growth hub’. Together, these facilities will be a powerful combination, attracting businesses looking to futureproof their manufacturing and supply chains. At a single location, the port will offer connections to low-carbon sea and rail transport, solar energy, wind energy, heat networks, hydrogen production, and carbon capture facilities – all alongside the land needed to build the next generation of businesses.

The results will bring new jobs and prosperity to Newport, drive growth across the sub-region, and help us improve the well-being of current and future generations across Wales.
