The city of Ansan announced on Dec. 18 that SF Marina, an advanced floating solution expert headquartered in Sweden, unveiled a plan to build up an offshore town of floating pontoon marina system alongside the west coast of Korea. The announcement came right next to the presentation session to outline SF Marina group’s business activities throughout the world at the ‘ROK- Sweden Biz Summit’.
But since when and how big the scope would be haven’t been disclosed, the city said. “The announcement of the floating village project this time appears to be a gesture to reaffirm the investment agreement reached at the EU Investment Seminar held in Paris last October 2018. It is highly likely that SF Marina would hand out a draft for this USD 100 million plan to the city of Ansan early next year, though we haven’t heard any details yet. I think the village will settle in the nearby town of Daebu island.”, a city official said.
Seeing it a huge contributor to the local economy, the city is looking forward to launching the project, saying they'll look into the plan and go through a necessary administrative steps to make it out.
