With 2,000 hectares reserved for industrial use, the ChemCoast Park Brunsbüttel is the largest industrial area in Schleswig-Holstein. For more than 50 years, companies of the chemical and oil industry, energy producers and logisticians work and deal here. They all profit from the strategic location at both the Elbe and Kiel Canal as well as the vicinity of the dynamic Hamburg Metropolitan Region. More than 12,500 jobs in the region are influenced by the local companies - more than 4,000 of these directly in Brunsbüttel.

The ChemCoast Park Brunsbüttel provides a fully developed infrastructure. The plots are depicted as Industrial Area in the land utilisation plan, standing ready even for large scale projects. Moreover, the partner companies offer a variety of services: From fire brigades and security services to facility management and analytics, all manner of facilities are being provided. Thus investment and operating costs may be reduced considerably.

One of the main advantages of Brunsbüttel are her multi-purpose ports which provide intermodal logistic services. At the two canal- and one river-ports primarily oil, gases and chemical products but also containers and project-loads as well as bulk materials are being handled. The Elbehafen provides a draft of 14,80m and is suitable for sea going vessels of up to 100,000tdw.

The ChemCoast Park covers the industrial area in Brunsbüttel but also partner companies in Glückstadt, Lägerdorf, Friedrichskoog and Hemmingstedt.
