The port of Schwedt

Our Location Advantages

The Schwedt Industrial Estate is not restricted to any particular type of industry.
It is strategically located in the northeast of the greater Berlin-Brandenburg economic area on the Berlin-Szczecin axis directly on the border to Poland. It is an ideal launch pad for reaching the markets of Eastern and Central Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic states.
The Schwedt Industrial Estate is just a stone's throw away from PCK Raffinerie GmbH and is one of Brandenburg's largest industrial parks.
The outstanding potentials offered by this location are particularly appealing to investors from the sectors of renewable energies (especially biofuels), logistics and metalworking, to name just a few.
As a designated regional growth centre, Schwedt enjoys special support from both regional and state level agencies. At the municipal level, business friendly policies and clear ownership structures on the site, including all utility issues, means there is never any guessing as to who is responsible for what.

Special advantages for renewable energies
Northern Brandenburg is evolving into a leading region for renewable energies and renewable resources, with photovoltaics, wind power, biogas and biofuels topping the list.
And Schwedt is one of the most important centres for this development.

  • A bioethanol plant, biodiesel plant, and wood pellet plant are now in productive operation generating any number of potential synergy options.
  • PCK Raffinerie GmbH uses biofuels for its production processes.
  • The production of 2nd generation biomass fuels opens up very interesting and innovative development pathways. Such development requires the permanent availability of agricultural biomass, something that is not a problem in this farming region.
  • This interfacing of traditional industry, agriculture and forestry offers a huge range of possibilities when it comes to developing new products.
  • Northeastern Germany has large areas of land that could be used for the production of biomass.
    And economic partnerships in Poland open up additional potential for developing new areas for biomass cultivation.
  • For businesses involved in biological raw materials, the successful cooperation that local industry has for many years enjoyed with the University of Applied Sciences in Eberswalde is yet another good reason to locate to this region.
