Oslo Pensjonsforsikring (OPF), which took over Herøya Industrial Park in mid-2016, has shown a strong appetite for investment. In two years, they have invested around NOK 100 million in the industrial park, and now Caverion is to have a new building.
The right conditions exist for a railway terminal for freight at Herøya Industrial Park, according to the Norwegian Railway Directorate and Bane NOR, which are investigating this together with the industrial park's hosts, Vekst i Grenland and Grenland Harbour. A socioeconomic analysis is a key element of this investigation.
“We have an incredible objective – to have no vehicles driven by humans at the industrial park within a few years. Digitisation and autonomy are not an objective in themselves, but they will help to resolve challenges in respect of logistics and safety at the industrial park.”
