The upcoming industrial estate Ecorhena is located directly on the French-German border in southern Alsace. Both French and German actors are involved in the development of the project, making it a prime example of cross-border cooperation. The EU is also involved: European funding is available in the framework of the project.
The industrial estate:
The site covers a total area of 90 ha. The areas can be divided according to the needs of the companies. Ecorhena‘s planning is adapted to the timeframe of each company’s relocation project. Each company gets its own qualified contact person. Required approval procedures are carried out in parallel, so that projects can be implemented quickly.
The location of the industrial estate, close to Germany, is one of the many assets of the area. Dynamic cities such as Strasbourg, Colmar, Mulhouse, Karlsruhe, Freiburg, Basel and Zurich are very close by.
The area is also well connected in terms of transportation infrastructure:
– Waterways: The Rhine, Europe’s central waterway, is right next door and guarantees fast connections to the Benelux countries and to the international ports of the North Sea. The Ecorhena industrial estate offers direct river access and the possibility of slipways or container shipping.
– By rail: There are rail connections both north and south of the site, also for freight transport. Investments in the rail network were already made in advance.
– By road: Thanks to its border proximity, Ecorhena offers access to motorways on both sides of the Rhine.
– In air: Basel-Mulhouse international airport is just half an hour away. From there, most European cities and capitals can be reached within 1.5 hours by plane.
Highly qualified specialists:
The Fessenheim nuclear power plant located in the industrial area has closed down mid-2020. Companies can therefore have access to qualified technical workers already available on site. The region is also known for its good quality of life (residential areas, schools, nature, culture, attractive cities in the immediate vicinity).
Green innovation in Grand Est:
Innovation, particularly in the fields of renewable energy and the industry of the future, is one of the priorities of the Ecorhena project. The “Green Est” Strategy has helped develop a dynamic innovation network, highly appreciated by companies.
