250 hectares available for new industrial activities on HAROPA Port land

250 hectares available for new industrial activities on HAROPA Port land

(Posted on 22/05/24)

The “France 2030 Turnkey Sites” scheme announced in May 2023 by the French government has been set up under the proposed green industry law aimed at speeding up France’s reindustrialisation. An initial shortlist at national level led to the selection of 55 sites that offer major potential for industrial development. Among the selected areas of real estate, five are located on land administered by HAROPA PORT.

The aim of the government is to accelerate the identification and development of industrial sites. The basis of the initiative is the “France 2030 Turnkey Sites” scheme. The five sites identified on HAROPA PORT land will benefit from support from central and local government. The government scheme enables real estate to be showcased to industrial operators in conjunction with shorter lead-times for official procedures and on-site set-up. These optimised lead-times are intended to allow HAROPA PORT to deliver construction-ready plots for new industrial activities over the period to 2030.

Four sites are located in the Le Havre port industrial area and one in the equivalent area in Rouen. These plans for the reintroduction of industrial activities are a practical outcome of the undertaking given by HAROPA PORT in its Strategic Plan for 2020-2025. The certified sites offer excellent geographical and operational profiles due to their connections to mass freight transport networks, clusters of business and logistics activities, infrastructure, services and key utilities.

These plots are intended for industrial activities that meet the needs of the ecological transition for major strategical activities for the country.

The five sites total nearly 250 hectares available on HAROPA PORT land, a unique and rare opportunity in the Northern Range ports.

The turnkey sites located in the Le Havre port area cover areas approximately ranging between 25 and 60 hectares:

-         The West A29 site in the town of Rogerville, immediately adjacent to the Le Havre Grand Canal and the A29 highway, has an area of 60 hectares and has been placed on the market under a call for project proposals currently in force and published at

-         On the eastern side of the same highway, an area of approximately 25 hectares has also been certified.

-         Also in Rogerville, the Southeast Grand Canal site located near MTV (multibulk terminal) will provide an area in the region of 30 hectares.

-         And lastly, on the southern part of the Le Havre port area, the South Grand Canal site will provide 54 hectares of real estate suitable for expansion, depending on requirements.

In the port area to the south of Rouen, the Grand-Couronne/Moulineaux industrial platform has also been certified as a France 2030 Turnkey Site. This platform – 75 hectares, extendable – is located west of a logistics zone covering almost 200 hectares: RVSL (Rouen Seine valley logistics platform), which is host to a concentration of high value-added goods consolidation activities. The available site is also near TCMD (container and sundry cargo terminal).
