EEMSHAVEN: BASE PORT AND SERVICE PORT FOR THE OFFSHORE WIND INDUSTRY

EXCELLENT SITUATED AND MANY FACILITIES

Eemshaven is excellent situated, close to the North Sea, and well-equipped to accommodate logistic (offshore) projects. Many facilities are available in Eemshaven, like business sites, service locations, storage possibilities, (heavy load) quays, jetties, office space, etc. which makes this port excellent suitable as marshal- ling or service port. The distance to the wind farms (under construction, planned or completed) is short.

Approx. 95 hectares offshore sites available
Heavy load quay: 30 ton/m2 near quay jacking
Impressive track record (12 offshore windparks launched from Eemshaven)

TRACK RECORD

The last years it has been busy in Eemshaven regarding assembly and shipping activities of wind turbines, which results in an impressive track record of wind farms launched from the Eemshaven: successively Alpha Ventus, Bard Offshore I, Borkum Riffgat, Merkur Offshore, Borkum Riffgrund I, Trianel Windpark Borkum, Global Tech I, Gemini, Gode Wind I & II, Veja Mate and Race Bank. In the near future many offshore wind projects are planned, in which Eemshaven fits as marshalling port.

DIRECT ACCESS TO THE NORTH SEA

Due to the uncongested roads and ports, and efficient logistics there are hardly any waiting times in the Eemshaven. Eemshaven is multimodal attainable and has direct access to the North Sea. The port basins are wide and there are no sealocks or bridges, which makes it possible to pre-assemble the rotor blades and the nacelle in Eemshaven and transship the complete rotor star to the concerned wind farm. Furthermore an airport is in the vicinity and a heliport is under development in Eemshaven.

BEATRIXHAVEN: HEAVY LOAD QUAY, NEAR QUAY JACKING, SPACE

With the completion of the Beatrixhaven Eemshaven has strengthened its position as marshalling port in the offshore wind industry. A special quay with a length of 220 metres has been built for extra heavy cargoes. The heavy load quay has a maximum capacity (equally divided load) of 30 tons/m2 and has been especially designed for the transhipment of extra-heavy cargoes such as wind turbine components. Jack-up ships can moor just in front of the quay using their own cranes, and plenty of space is available for companies to establish their businesses.

SERVICE PORT

Both Emmahaven and Beatrixhaven are suitable for service and maintenance activities regarding the offshore wind business.There are sufficient berthing places for small and medium sized vessels and it is possible to embark passengers. Besides that, plenty of storage areas are available: paved or unpaved, outside and/or in warehouses. Furthermore, several sites for permanent use are available around the Emma- or Beatrixhaven and can be bought or leased. It is also possible to rent existing locations or make use of existing facilities.

HELIPORT EEMSHAVEN
Eemshaven is able to play a key role in maintaining and repairing (planned) wind turbines. Therefore a starting and landing site for helicopters will be constructed in the northwestern part of Eemshaven.
