Orthios Eco Parks Limited is proposing to build the sites and Chinese investment company SinoFortone Group will raise the cash.

Together they will develop the sites over the next three years.

The Orthios team has designed their first Eco Park to sit on the former Anglesey Aluminium site at Holyhead and says 500 new jobs could be created.
