Unions and companies: Active industrial policy

Trade unions and the companies based in Brunsbüttel, in the largest industrial area in Schleswig-Holstein, are demanding an active industrial policy from the future state government. As examples, the alliance of DGB Nord, IG mining, chemistry and energy and ChemCoast Park cited the expansion of renewable energies and transport routes and the acceleration of planning and approval procedures on Wednesday. As an energy hub, the location and port on the Kiel Canal play a key role in Germany’s energy supply, according to a statement. It is particularly suitable for industrial added value in line with climate protection.

It is particularly suitable for industrial added value in line with climate protection.

Companies from the chemical and petroleum industries, energy production, logistics and other branches of industry are represented on 2000 hectares. They use the strategic location on the Elbe and the Kiel Canal as well as the proximity to the metropolis of Hamburg. 12,500 jobs are linked to the location, over 4,000 of them directly in Brunsbüttel. Among other things, import terminals for liquefied natural gas (LNG) and ammonia are planned there.

The location not only offers direct access to LNG as a bridging technology, but also to green energy sources such as hydrogen, ammonia and wind power, said company spokesman Frank Schnabel. There are more requests for space for companies to settle here than ever before. This illustrates the great radiance of the west coast energy region, said Laura Pooth, head of the DGB North.

The alliance calls for a two-track expansion of the Itzehoe/Wilster-Brunsbüttel railway line with end-to-end electrification and the upgrading of the Hochdonn railway bridge so that more goods can be shifted to the railways. The B5 is to be expanded to three lanes between Itzehoe and Brunsbüttel beyond Wilster. The A20 must continue to be built as quickly as possible and the fifth lock chamber on the Kiel Canal must be completed quickly.
