From this city of knowledge and technology, the cluster’s rapid growth is driven by global offshore giants like Maersk Oil, Ramboll Oil & Gas and Semco Maritime. Onshore, the waste-to-energy pioneer Babcock & Wilcox Vølund, alongside SE—which controls the EU’s largest smart grid living lab—are market leaders each in its own category.
To ensure that growth continues, companies here are working closely with Aalborg University in Esbjerg, which is specially focused on offshore energy systems in order to create tomorrow’s innovative energy and offshore solutions of the highest quality.
The cluster is only a few hours’ drive from Copenhagen and Hamburg and is centred around Esbjerg, Denmark’s fifth-largest city. The city, which is beautifully situated on the edge of the magnificent North Sea, has a frontier spirit and is quickly evolving into a city of international knowledge and technology, which also attracts many international residents. This influx is also evidenced by the fact that Esbjerg International School is one of Denmark’s largest.
The cluster’s newcomer service will take care of all practical issues so you can focus on defining the future of offshore energy and energy technologies.
