Belfast Innovation district welcomes green tech tenant to Channel Commercial Park in Titanic Quarter
A UK-wide electrical company has set its sights on Belfast’s innovation district for its first standalone renewables division in Northern Ireland.
EEL Greentech, part of Edmundson Electrical, has taken 14,400 sq. ft of prime industrial and office space at the now fully let Channel Commercial Park. Located within the city’s Titanic Quarter, it will drive growth in the areas of solar PV and EV charging as demand for sustainable products grows across Europe and the rest of the world.
The move represents an investment of a quarter of a million pounds and has created four new roles initially, with a projected £1.5m investment over the next five years in the facilities and its people, to respond to market demand.
Channel Commercial Park is home to big industry stalwarts such as Amazon, NI’s science hub Catalyst, as well as homegrown carbon neutral champions like Catagen and Artemis Technologies, employing more than 850 people.
As interest in the location grows among net zero and carbon neutral business champions, EEL Greentech is one of the last tenants to secure space within the park with the developers confirming the site is now fully let.
Jake Keyworth, Manager at EEL Greentech said: “Many of our deliveries come into the docks so Titanic Quarter has been on our radar for a long time. When we realised that Channel Commercial Park could facilitate our needs in terms of space and scalability, we were hooked. It’s allowed us to move into what is arguably Belfast’s most exciting location and neighbour other amazing companies in the ‘green’ space”.

James Eyre, Commercial Director at Titanic Properties Ltd commented: “We’re delighted to welcome EEL Greentech to our emerging community of innovation champions. Northern Ireland is a hot bed for world-class initiatives in the carbon neutral/net zero agenda and we’re pleased so much of it is happening in the Titanic Quarter; the original location for industrial innovation. It was our goal to create a bustling hub for likeminded companies to work alongside each other, enabling collaboration and sharing of best practice by creating a community of innovators. We’re pleased to say the Park is now fully let – a further endorsement of how popular a location it has become.”
