Over the last few weeks we have had several interesting inquiries from companies who regard Greater Bergen as an interesting place for their next move, says Vidar Totland (left), Tone Hartvedt and Ben Steele in Invest in Bergen.

We are open for business

The whole world is having a hard time coping with the coronavirus pandemic. Nevertheless, people and companies are trying to look for opportunities that will come on the other side of COVID-19.

The world will look different when the coronavirus crisis is over. In spite of everything happing right now, Norway and Greater Bergen have some assets and some industries we think will be interesting for the future. The ocean industries have always been strong in Norway, and especially on the country’s western coast.

Bergen is well‑situated on the west coast and is a good place to develop our seafood industry, the energy sector including oil, gas and renewable energy, and the maritime sector – particularly when it comes to developing electric and hydrogen propulsion systems for ships.

Data centres

During the last few years Invest in Bergen has also been developing opportunities for establishing data centres in Greater Bergen. Today we have about five sites with excellent energy infrastructure solutions, which could be tailormade for HPC data centres.

Several interesting inquiries

Over the last few weeks we have had several interesting inquiries from companies who regard Greater Bergen as an interesting place for their next move. We do appreciate this, and we hope to help some of them to set up their business here during 2020.

We’re looking forward to seeing you again!
