History of the area Nya Varvet

The area where the Marine Innovation Summit is being held is located at the mouth of the Göta River. This was used as a naval port around the year 1700, in connection with the outbreak of the Great Nordic War.
In the final phase of the war, in 1717 and 1719, the naval harbor was exposed to attacks by Danish warships under the leadership of Vice Admiral Peter Tordenskjold.

Later in the 18th century, the area was mostly used for mooring, but parts of the Army’s fleet were based here. In connection with the Napoleon Wars at the beginning of the 19th century, the defense of the area was strengthened, and new buildings were erected. Afterwards, there was a slow downsizing of the business, and the area was handed over to the Prison Service Board in 1870 to be used as a prison.
After the dissolution of the union with Norway in 1905, the area again gained increased importance, and during the two world wars there was a further expansion of military activities. After a parliamentary decision, the area was sold to civil stakeholders in 1985.

Today, there are various types of civilian activities in the area.
