WHAT IS THE INDUSTRIAL PARK CONCEPT?

The industrial park concept is based on the individual companies concentrating fully on their own business ideas without having to devote time or energy to practical matters.

Companies are available in the immediate vicinity that offer such services as:

  • Maintenance and Civil Engineering Solutions
  • ICT and Accounting
  • Energy and Logistics
  • Engineering and Architecture
  • And other relevant services.

There is a clear economic advantage to having a shared infrastructure and services.
At the same time, there is free competition and each company can chose its own collaboration partners. This results in a healthy and effective structure in which both suppliers and customers have the opportunity to profitably develop their own activities.

At the same time, some projects are so large or complex that they can only be carried out in partnership. This takes place at the industrial park through joint tenders, network collaboration and supplier development.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Strong competence clusters and sophisticated infrastructure have laid the foundation for a potent business community at the Mo Industrial Park. Resources are utilised more efficiently and costs shared by numerous parties in a lucrative community.

Local power

The Mo Industrial Park has access to large quantities of renewable energy from the Rana region.

Local hydropower offers a significant environmental advantage compared to a metallurgic industry based on coal, nuclear power or long-haul energy with considerable transfer loss.

Access to water

Three water reservoirs and six dams ensure that the industry has excellent access to water in Rana.

With a usage concession of a little more than 91 million cubic metres of water annually, the Mo Industrial Park has Norway’s second largest waterworks after the Municipality of Oslo.

Well-established infrastructure

The Mo Industrial Park can offer a well-established infrastructure for logistics and data networks, as well as the distribution of energy, gas and water.

Mo Industripark AS manages, develops and operates a considerable percentage of this infrastructure and can offer new businesses the necessary support.

Availability

The Mo Industrial Park offers ample opportunity for new industry to be established. MIP AS has the largest accessible and regulated industrial zones in Northern Norway.

Close proximity to quays and links to existing industry facilitate extensive opportunities.

PROUD INDUSTRIAL HISTORY

The legendary preacher Hans Nielsen Hauge was travelling through Rana in 1803 when he saw considerable economic opportunities for the region, including the construction of an ironworks. It was not until 150 years later that this became a reality.

After World War II, the national government passed a resolution to build an ironworks in Mo i Rana. Thanks to the ability to adapt and develop, industry in the region has grown and developed into its current form.
