    The area all around the onshore control center for this new underwater testing ground will become the “Ocean Technology Campus”, located at the Rostock Freight and Fishing Port and offering a productive environment where high-tech maritime solutions can be developed and tested

    Things are happening at Rostock’s fishing port: Standard Aggregatebau Evers GmbH & Co. KG (SAB) in Bramow has constructed a new office building at the edge of the wharf and have just started work on a new, approx. 4,100 m² multipurpose building. What’s special about this new building is that SAB isn’t building it just for its own purposes, it’s also taking the first players of the Ocean Technology Campus (OTC) under its wing.
