As the offshore energy capital of Denmark, Esbjerg has a strong cluster within offshore oil and gas. Moreover, as one of the leading preassembly and installation ports for offshore wind in the world, the industry in Esbjerg has assisted in bringing installations of more than 12 GW of wind offshore to the countries surrounding the North Sea.
Bioenergy/biotech and pharma
Esbjerg also has a large bioenergy and biotech/pharma industry with extraction production and technology providers with a high level of expertise.
Fiber and data business
Esbjerg is exceptionally well-connected to the core internet (terrestrial and submarine cables) and all of Europe’s major gateways; a position that will be further enhanced over the next few years. By the end of 2019, the fiber-optic project “Havfrue” (“Mermaid”) will connect Esbjerg and the US and double the available capacity between the US and Europe.
