A Unique Investment
The Global Centre of Rail Excellence (GCRE) in South Wales is one of the most important and creative infrastructure projects in rail today. The project is taking the next, major step in its development by inviting private sector investors to take a majority equity stake in GCRE Ltd and to become a strategic partner that can help realise the ambitious vision of the project.
A site for world class testing
When it opens in 2025 GCRE will be a site for world class testing of rolling stock, infrastructure and innovative new rail technologies that will fill a strategic gap in rail, not just here in the UK, but across Europe.
The project is taking the next, major step in its development by inviting private sector investors to take a majority equity stake in GCRE Ltd and to become a strategic partner that can help realise the ambitious vision of the project.
The investment opportunity is a unique one and we are seeking strategic partner(s) who can support GCRE to develop the infrastructure of the site, primarily rail and energy and maximise the commercial potential of GCRE. We welcome interest from partners with experience in rail infrastructure and / or major projects.
GCRE also requires a reliable, affordable energy supply to ensure we meet the power needs of GCRE’s customers (traction and domestic), and which supports GCRE to deliver on its Net Zero ambitions. The GCRE site has a number of attractive features that allow for a wider commercial proposition in respect of both rail and energy generation in excess of the core requirements needed by the GCRE.
We are looking for partners that can take a majority equity stake in the GCRE business. That can be either as a single investor or as partners.

We held a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event with potential investors and strategic partners in December and the presentation from the day can be found here:
