Dunkirk: an industrial and port area turned towards innovation,

which has succeeded in taking up the energy transition challenge!



DUNKIRK: STRONG LOCAL INDUSTRIAL AND PORT DYNAMICS
Dunkirk is intimately linked to the sea. A fishing port, a commercial port, an industrial port, a Cross-Channel port, a marina… over the course of time, the economic and social life of the area has been shaped by the successive
development of these various sectors of activity. The 3rd ranked French seaport, the 9th ranked port in the
Northern Range which extends from Le Havre to Hamburg, the leading energy platform in Europe, Dunkirk, at the
heart of a conurbation of 17 communes and 200,000 inhabitants, combines an industrial tradition with a port
tradition.
