The town of Urk is traditionally known for its fishing and high quality shipbuilding and outfitting industry. Currently located in a centrally located city port, industrial cluster reached the limit of its growth potential. An opportunity consortium has beaten together to jointly develop a shipbuilding center outside the city. Due to the above regional importance for employment and economic structure the assistance of the Province of Flevoland is invoked in a landlord role to contribute. The Province of Flevoland leads the public law integration, but has no expertise in the area of port development and operation. StigΔ advises on the development process, risks, contracting and financial feasibility.
