Hamburg, 23. September 2021. Buss Terminal in Eemshaven has been awarded with another project contract: Starting in October 2022 Eemshaven is going to serve as base port for pre-assembly and installation of rotor blades, nacelles and towers of the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm. Approximately 210,000 m² of the 250,000 m² sized heavy cargo terminal are going to be occupied.
The wind farm located in the North Sea is approximately 18,5 km off the coast of the province North Holland. “We are delighted to provide our areas and services for this large-scale project to CrossWind. This underlines the combined strength of our project team in Hamburg and our purpose-built terminal in Eemshaven”, John Meijer, Managing Director of Buss Terminal Eemshaven, states about the upcoming project.
The wind farm of CrossWind (a joint venture of Shell and Eneco) is going to count 69 Siemens Gamesa 11-megawatt turbines. With a total installed capacity of 759 MW, generating at least 3.3 TWh per year. This is equivalent to some 2.8% of Dutch electricity demand.
“We are looking forward to working with our partner Buss Terminal Eemshaven. With the harbour in place, work can start in order to deliver clean energy by 2023”, states Tjalling de Bruin, CEO and Project Director of CrossWind HKN.
