Why Alicante: Nordic cluster
Nordic Clusters has founded four subsidiaries – SansOx Spain, FimusKraft Spain, Witrafi Spain and RMV Tech Spain – to be able to operate in Spain, and has employed its first staff.
“SansOx works in a cluster of four Finnish companies in the clean tech sector,” explains Juan Francisco Abad, the Spanish director of Nordic Clusters. “Three of them form a chain of co-operation: FimusKraft turns biomass into biogas, RMV Tech turns biogas into electricity-heat and flame systems, and SansOx makes sure the biomass is dry enough for the process. The fourth company, Witrafi, revolutionises the way people find a parking space.”
About 20% of Spain’s water is recirculated. The cluster members want to bring new technologies to the Spanish water market and create new ways of recirculating water, as well as pursuing their core businesses in Spain. There is an urgent and constant demand for water in Spain due to the warm weather. Orchards and groves use a lot of water, and the water quality needs to be excellent. The clusters have had very promising discussions with several groups interested in collaboration, thanks to Distrito Digital.
