The Ásbrú Enterprise Park in Iceland has been named as an ideal location for carbon fiber manufacturing by Kadeco, a leading business development company.
It has been stated by Kadeco that Iceland has big advantages as a location for carbon fiber manufacturing due to the country’s local geothermal renewable energy sources providing a lowered cost of production, as well as a stable grid connection and reliable delivery rates. In contrast from the U.S., Iceland can make long-term energy contracts offering a much-needed stability in productions cost.
Ásbrú Enterprise Park has available industrial lots with the possibility to develop buildings able for the production for carbon fiber manufacturing. The local facilities already built at the park give manufacturers the possibility to start production on a smaller scale.
Furthermore, the enterprise park is ideally located within the area of Iceland’s main international airport and its international harbour.
Keilir, an educational institution located at Ásbrú, offers two multidisciplinary B.Sc. programs in co-operation with the University of Iceland; green energy technology, and mechatronics – these institutions provide opportunities regarding future Labour.
Ásbrú Enterprise Park is on the forefront of entrepreneurship, business and academic development in Iceland, with focus on technology, renewable energy, medical tourism and engineering.
