Buss Terminal Eemshaven in the Netherlands has been selected as the base port for the pre-assembly and installation of rotor blades, nacelles and towers for the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm.

Approximately 210,000 sq m of the 250,000 sq m heavy cargo terminal will be occupied for the project.

The wind farm is being developed by CrossWind – a joint venture of Shell and Eneco. It will comprise 69 Siemens Gamesa 11 MW turbines, with a total installed capacity of 759 MW.

“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,” said John Meijer, managing director of Buss Terminal Eemshaven.
