Greenspot Mongstad
Mongstad Industrial Park is seeking to encourage further sustainable development at the park through the Greenspot Mongstad initiative. This is a joint initiative involving several
stakeholders from a range of industries.

Local players are laying the foundation for green growth, and are specifically looking to welcome new companies in the fields of:
           • Hydrogen production (and its associated supply chain)
           • Battery manufacturing
           • Onshore wind
           • Land-based aquaculture

The site owners’ strategy is to position Mongstad Industrial Park as a “hydrogen hub”. There are plans to build a large-scale hydrogen facility at the site by 2024, in order to produce and distribute this clean fuel along the Norwegian coast. This will generate significant long-term opportunities for the industrial park and its surrounding region.

Heath and power 

In Mongstad there's a significant amount of waste heat, in the form of low-temperature water (16-20 degrees celsius), for new industry players who may want to use of this input. The refinery also has excess of hot water (95 degrees celsius).

BKK is developing new powerlines between Modalen-Mongstad-Kollsnes, and the area will be supplied with further capacity in their distribution gird, which can be used for new commercial developments.

A natural gas supply from Kollsnes to Mongstad is also being developed. In addition to this, you will find: retail, service, meeting facilities, a taxi office, and all other amenities that contribute to making a modern commercial area attractive.

Both of the municipalities have set aside a significant amount of new commercial land. There's also room to allow more businesses into the existing commercial area in both municipalities. Several areas have already had their zoning plans approved, and work is continuously being done to promote new sites.

The commercial area is less than an hour drive from Bergen.

The area has a modern approved ISPS port facility with accompanying storage facilities.

You can find the zoning plan for the area in the right-hand column, under “Useful information”.
