Maritime Campus Elsfleth

As a public-private partnership between the University of Applied Sciences Oldenburg/Ostfriesland/Wilhelmshaven (Department of Nautical Studies), the Elsfleth City Council, the federal state of Lower Saxony and Beluga Shipping GmbH, the Maritime Campus in Elsfleth represents a unique competence centre.

Nautic students and prospective ship mechanics, researchers and representatives of renowned companies will learn, work, conduct research and live close to the river Hunte on an area covering 30.000 square metres. The ship mechanic centre has opened in autumn 2008, the Maritime Research Centre in spring 2009. The university extension will round up the Maritime Campus in summer 2009. The Maritime Campus in Elsfleth, once nearly threatened by closure, will therefore soon represent the most advanced and innovative maritime education, research and training site in Germany.

Niels Stolberg, CEO of Beluga Shipping GmbH and himself a graduate of the nautical training school in Elsfleth, is especially committed to the Maritime Research Centre, making it possible to examine specific aspects of operational business as well as elaborate and further develop them on a practical basis, create a link between research and industry and further enhance the alignment of the Maritime Campus through varied forms of cross-site cooperation with renowned project partners. Work at the Maritime Research Centre focuses on maritime environmental protection and climate impact research, maritime information and communication technology, shipbuilding and maritime systems technology, maritime infrastructure and logistics and maritime qualifications.
