Industrial Investments

We offer our clients market-leading expertise in all relevant aspects and throughout the lifecycle of industrial investment projects in the Nordic sphere, be it circular economy, nuclear energy, hydrogen generation, carbon capture and storage, wind energy, heat recovery, or other similar areas. From the initial permitting phase through project execution and operation to completion of production, we provide comprehensive and seamless support at every stage. We are your trusted advisor in all industrial investments and other green transition projects in the Nordics.

The green transition is reshaping the industrial landscape, turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities for new circular economy solutions, low-emission innovations, scaling up renewable energy and the adoption of new technologies. Our team is at your service to facilitate this development. Our experience also covers bio-refineries producing various biofuels. These industries are crucial components of the green transition, moving us closer to a circular economy where resources are conserved and reused. Our involvement also extends to industrial production and completion of production.

Professional, quick, pertinent, nice to work with.

Projects of this nature typically consist of multiple phases. We have the competence and experience to provide strategic support at every stage of your project, starting from the initial site selection, including assessment of the regional and site-specific requirements, such as those imposed by protected Natura 2000 areas, the planning phase, navigating the different stages of the permitting process and the contracting phase to the final investment decision and project execution, operating phase and completion of the project.

We can help facilitate your investments, especially those backed by governmental initiatives, by guiding you in the EU funding and support mechanisms.
