Gathering industries at sea can increase value creation, while also freeing up land for others who use the sea as a workplace.
Marine business parks – a brief summary
Marine business parks are when two or more marine business activities take place within the same area or on the same physical platform. This can contribute to increased value creation, while also freeing up land for others who use the sea as a workplace. Co-location will be able to contribute to reduced costs and increased value creation through shared infrastructure, cooperation on services for operation, monitoring, maintenance and emergency preparedness.
Here are some arguments for why Utsira should get involved and get involved in marine business parks:
Increased value creation: Marine business parks can contribute to increased value creation through cooperation and co-location of marine business activities.
Reduced costs: Co-location will be able to reduce costs through shared infrastructure and services.
Sustainable development: Marine business parks can contribute to the sustainable development of the marine economy through circular economy and cooperation between the actors.
Ripple effects on land: Marine business parks can have ripple effects on land through increased employment and value creation in nearby coastal communities.
We hope this summary gives a good understanding of what marine business parks are and why it is important for Utsira to get involved and get involved in this exciting area.
Norway has an ambition to increase value creation from the sea. Existing industries are changing and new ones are emerging. In the long term, there will be greater competition for the most attractive sea areas. We should avoid a development where the level of conflict increases and the climate and nature crisis worsens. Therefore, it is more important than ever to identify measures that can contribute to more value creation without increasing conflicts. One possible measure is marine business parks.
