A GREEN WORLD CLASS INDUSTRIAL PARK

The industrial park in Mo i Rana is like a greenhouse where both rebar and salmon fry are produced. In 2022, work began making room for a new giant, the Giga Factory. Integrated with each other, and by utilizing several common services with short transport distances, the industry's footprint at the environment is kept as small as possible. At the same time, resources are better utilized, and companies' competitiveness is kept strong. That is the MIP way!

A sustainable future is the driving force

When the industrial park was built in the fifties on the large wooded plain east of Mo, there were basically three plants that had space: a pig ironworks, a steelworks and a rolling mill. Between the plants there was a traditional railway connection. When the rolling mill was completed in '55, it was the country's largest building under one roof, and the building has since been expanded several times.

The production of liquid metal creates surplus material, slag, and this has over the years been used to expand the plot area in the industrial park by several hundred acres. Including the quay facilities by the fjord, Mo Industrial Park cover 2600 acres. The industrial park buildings cover more than 350,000 m² consisting of everything from raw material warehouses to offices.

The construction of the Giga Arctic means 70,000 m² more than today. That is almost the same area as the rolling mill building, the large flat building in the picture above.

Red-hot steel is important, but no longer dominant in the industrial park

Mo Industrial Park has an ambition to be a modern industrial park based on sustainable and renewable energy, also for future generations. This ambition is crucial for the companies' competitiveness, and for the industry to be able to recruit new and well-educated labor. At the same time, there is a basic attitude that the nature around the park and the inhabitants of Mo i Rana should not be subjected to airborne dust, heavy metals or contaminated discharges to water.

In January 2022, the industrial park consists of 108 companies with a total of 2,600 employees.  

Mo Industrial Park has established the following vision for its business:

"Mo Industrial Park aims to become a world-class green industrial park, and create value by focusing on environmentally friendly and energy-efficient services and solutions."

Enova believes that Mo Industripark's work for increased sustainability is "best in class", based on the many good measures that have been implemented over several years, and the individual projects that several of the park's companies are working on. In close collaboration with the SINTEF-led research center HighEFF , Mo Industripark is turning every stone to improve the industry's energy efficiency and recycling.
