This demonstrates that Ringerike is an attractive region for international industries. It also shows that our region is important in terms of the green shift and the development of the Norwegian mainland economy through the creation of new and forward-looking jobs. If we succeed, we will see investment in the billions and the creation of hundreds of new jobs. This fits in well with the investments that are being made in the new E16 and the Ringerike railline.
