Buss cues up wind farm work

Buss Group has signed an agreement with wind turbine manufacturer Senvion that will see the terminal operator support the development of the Trianel Windpark Borkum II offshore wind farm.

The Orange Blue Terminal in Eemshaven, the Netherlands, will handle components making up 32 Senvion wind turbines that will be installed at the wind farm, which is located approximately 45 km north of the German coast in the North Sea.

Buss will be responsible for the planning, transport and interim storage at the terminal, as well as pre-assembly and subsequent delivery of the components to the quayside, ready for load-out. 

The planning phase should be completed before the end of the year, said Buss. Starting in spring 2019, rotor blades measuring approximately 75 m in length, tower segments, and 32 nacelles will be transported successively to the Orange Blue Terminal.

Around 80,000 sq m of the 250,000 sq m terminal will be used for the storage, handling and pre-assembly of the components.
