Kokkola has the most important chemical cluster in Northern Europe and an exceptionally strong metal industry cluster that have created high level cleantech know-how in the area. This know-how has cascaded down from big international industry corporations to dozens of SME’s, and to the educational institutions of the area.
This is why Kokkola is an excellent location for a pilot centre for developing new products, services, and solutions in the fields of sustainable building and housing, automatization of large energy systems, digitization, and collection and long-term storage of solar energy.
The global perspectives for growth are substantial within the strong industries of Kokkola. That is why we want to participate in developing an innovative cleantech environment for companies to grow, and to become international by using cleantech know-how.
