How does this project benefit the community in Þorlákshöfn?
Beyond creating both increased employment and employment opportunities and generating taxable income for the municipality, the project will also contribute to an attractive economy and development of the municipality as well as the harbour. Heidelberg Materials will – as it always has – work according to a social plan where the company sponsors certain sports, leisure and cultural events as well as certain entrepreneurial projects. The possibility of connecting the area and the environment as best as possible is also being examined, i.a. by putting a public viewing platform on top of the storage tanks from where there would be a great view of the local area and the landscape – which could easily become an attraction for locals and tourists.
