According to Yonhap News,
(TAEAN=Yonhap News) A vessel repair and maintenance business cluster is set to open in the county of Taean, South Chungcheong Province.
The county revealed April 6 that is has decided to gather local vessel-related businesses, currently scattered across the town of Taean, in one location, forming a specialized vessel cluster in Sakseon-3-ri on a site spanning 39,000 square meters of land.
The decision was made to deal with the problems occurring as a result of the scattered arrangement of vessel-related businesses, which have been considered major eyesores and sources of noise pollution.
On March 8, the county signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Taean Peninsula Industry Association, agreeing to push forward with land acquisition, complete licensing procedures, support resident companies move in, and provide other forms of administrative and financial support.
Land acquisition procedures will commence this month, and the county expects 20 companies to move in when the cluster opens at the end of the year.
