Intelligent and sustainable battery value chain

HT 1584

Vaasa's goal is to create the world's greenest battery ecosystem in Finland. The name GigaVaasa stands for an industrial park environment of more than 350 ha intended for the battery industry. The purpose and goal of GigaVaasa is to provide a sustainably implemented industrial environment for battery chemistry committed to sustainability. In addition to sustainability, the offered industrial park aims to ensure companies' competitiveness far into the future with its infrastructure concept.

Invest In work in the GigaVaasa area

The goal is to attract companies to the area, as well as the GigaVaasa-concept, and to try to get the companies to start the establishment process (plot reservation, EIA approval, etc.) During the process, the project is to support the companies in their profitability calculations so that the planned industrial infrastructure of the GigaVaasa area is utilized as much as possible in order to achieve competitiveness in a sustainable way.

Development om internal logistics in the GigaVaasa area

The project seeks to understand the processes of companies considering establishing in the region. By gathering information, the project can assure future centralized logistics services, as well as functional internal logistics in the GigaVaasa area, to set the stage for an emission-free battery factory ecosystem.

Synergy benefits of industrial infra

The aim is to create the world's greenest battery ecosystem, where the implementation of industrial infrastructure is done in a unique way. This is to assure that the region develops a competitive operating environment, implemented in a sustainable way. New companies have already come to the area and new are coming. This project aims to ensure compatibility, synergies and sustainable development among companies located in the area.

Skills and knowledge

The goal is to find out the needs of industrial experts with companies considering locating in the region, and to support the ability of educational institutions in the region to prepare for the development of training of different experts. As a result, a competence/competence map is created. Let's find out the Nordic Battery Belt - possibilities for cooperation.
