The largest energy cluster in the Nordic countries made it possible
The region´s energy industry employs about 10.000 people and the overall turnover is about 4 billion Euros.
Timing is everything. The local energy tehcnology industry is producing high-tech products, such as diesel and electric engines, frequency converters, power distribution systems and wind power applications. The export numbers have been increasing several years in a row and a large number of these products is best suited for air freight due to their size, weight and value. Similarly, a substantial part of basic components and raw materials has to be imported to the region.
The local economical activity is reflected in the steady growth of passengers using Vaasa Airport. Vaasa is one of the busiest airports in Finland and ranks second after Helsinki for freight.
Unique possibility to combine all four modes of transport
Vaasa Airport Logistics Center (VALC) is located right next to Vaasa airport and will be supported by a land traffic logistics center with its own rail traffic loading area and an improved road connection to the port, which is only 10 kilometres away.
The construction of this new air cargo logistics center is initiated in 2010.
