“This government label not only throws a spotlight, but also provides a marvellous boost, because setting up a new industrial operation or a logistics platform can take a great deal of time. By getting ahead of the official procedures and technical studies, we are in a position to offer investors two sites ideally located for the potential development of new activities on our land, in addition to new jobs” explains Edouard PHILIPPE, Chairman of the Le Havre Seine Métropole urban and district authority.

“The label awarded to Le Havre’s Grand Canal reflects the major ability of our local area to mobilize and constantly reinvent itself. Indeed, HAROPA PORT, with the support of its local partners, has proved itself capable of making this former cement production facility a site that is ready for the setting up of a new type of activity within a unique industry/port ecosystem. Early completion of the site diagnostics and our commitment to the development of a high level of services are key to success in setting up a large-scale project”, explains HAROPA PORT CEO Stéphane Raison.


The Grand Canal land in Le Havre, which is under HAROPA PORT ownership, offers an area of approximately 30 hectares in the industrial/port area with many utilities already in place (potable and industrial water, electricity, gas, steam).

The Eco-Normandie Business Park in Saint-Romain-de-Colbosc is ideally placed right next to the A29 motorway and the industrial areas of Le Havre and Port-Jérôme with 22 hectares available for setting up new activities.
