Future Arctic Logistics and Infrastructure
Organised by Arctic Frontiers and the Centre for High North Logistics

GLOBAL ATTENTION TOWARDS THE ARCTIC IS GROWING

Large amounts of recourses in the Arctic are linked to the ocean. Serious melting of the polar icecap causes great concern globally. At the same time, a number of actors are attracted by the evolving potential for activity due to an increasing accessibility of new areas. Significant energy potential, a changing environment and security landscape are among the attributes causing discussions about the future of the Arctic. Technology is one of the key factors to progress with the development and overcome the existing challenges in the Arctic.

How can future logistics and infrastructure provide opportunities for increased value creation in the Arctic region?

This side event addresses three areas of development within Arctic infrastructure and logistics:

  1. Offshore energy extraction
  2. Intra-regional transport
  3. Polar transit

Common to all three is that the operations are performed under extremely difficult conditions. This demands high operational expertise, advanced technology and quality along the entire value chain, which affects the development of clusters, logistic-needs and provides new business opportunities in the Arctic region.

Expectations of increased levels of activity faces the need to protect the environment and biological diversity in the Arctic. There is optimism connected to the energy potential and extraction of offshore resources in the Arctic. Transportation frequency is also likely to grow. The immediate opportunities are for extracting petroleum resources offshore, with intra-regional transport as a support service, and for exploiting mineral and natural resources onshore. Transit through the northern sea routes will gain in importance but will remain limited in volume in the next few years. This provides great opportunities but also responsibility to contribute to sustainable development.
