August 3 - Dutch companies BOW Terminal Vlissingen and SIF Group have signed an agreement to renew their cooperation.

The partnership involves the coordination and implementation of transport services for all SIF Group's projects at the new 40 ha construction, storage and load-out terminal situated in Rotterdam. Work on the project will commence this month.

BOW Terminal notes that the new cooperation will help it develop its own activities in Rotterdam, as well as the logistical services for SIF.

SIF Group ceo Jan Bruggenthijs stated that the partnership will provide the best possible service to the owners of installation ships used for offshore wind foundations, ranging from the supply of foundation components weighing up to 2,000 tonnes to crew changes.

Ludolf Reijntjes, managing director of BOW Terminal, added: "The site on the Maasvlakte is large enough to also initiate other activities alongside offshore wind. Having a deepwater quay and logistics equipment really allows for any number of possibilities."
