The union continues to support the construction of offshore platforms for the Baltic Sea in Rostock. For this, the Bundeswehr naval arsenal would have to lease part of its premises. But the exam is protracted.
Rostock (dpa/mv) - The industrial union IG Metall looks impatiently at the open decision to lease part of the naval arsenal site in Rostock. "At the moment I see the great danger that future opportunities - that we in Germany also have the added value for offshore industry ourselves - are dwindling," said district manager Daniel Friedrich of the German Press Agency.
According to the union, around 500 collective bargaining jobs could be created at Smulders. Another 500 people could also find work in the supply chain. He would like more support from the federal government for such a future project.
Friedrich sees no obvious alternative to the location in Warnemünde. According to him, it is both the access to the water - with a corresponding water depth - and the possibility of connecting to delivery routes that make the location so attractive. "It's really hair-pulling," said the union representative. You can now extend the test further or make the right decision, then you can start tomorrow. Information from the Ministry of Defense on the status of the test was initially not available.
