The Bakki industry park is open to new opportunites. It is located right next to the beautiful town of Húsavík.

The Bakki indurstrial area is located by national road no 85 about 2 km north of the town of Húsavík. The area is connected directly to Húsavík harbour with an industrial road specifically designed for heavy transport.
The total size of the area is 200 ha that has been designated in the municipal master plan for industrial development. PCC BakkiSilicon operates a plant that produces 33 thousand tons of silicon metal per year.
 
The area is well suited for small eco-friendly industrial operation that require 10-20 MW of green electricity. Ventures that can utilize heat and refined CO2 from the silicon metal plant would have a clear advantage.
