Innovation for the harbour of the future


Esbjerg Harbour has a strong and versatile portfolio, with traditional port activities and the offshore industry housed on the same pier. To ensure that the harbour can maintain its current activities and still take part in one of the largest growth areas of the future, the harbour’s space must be expanded and optimised innovatively.

Solution idea

The partners will collaborate on the strategic optimisation of the harbour’s space and the innovative solutions needed. Network-based co-operation will ensure that the harbour’s innovative development supports its users’ needs and development.
