Hub in offshore wind logistics

In between the European mainports Rotterdam and Hamburg, Groningen Seaports develops international import logistics by operating two deepsea ports, the ports of Delfzijl and Eemshaven. Geographically the Eemshaven is excellently situated for the offshore wind activities in the North Sea and it meets all maritime requirements. This seaport has developed into one of the largest energy ports in the Netherlands.

Eemshaven: Hub in offshore wind logistics

What we offer

As an offshore hub Eemshaven is perfectly situated. Thousands of wind turbines will be built in the North Sea over the next years, and it is Eemshaven that offers a wide range of opportunities for the offshore wind sector. The distance to the wind farms is short
and due to uncongested roads and ports and efficient logistics, there are hardly any waiting times. Over 100 hectares are available for offshore facilities. But there are more reasons why the Eemshaven is referred to as "the base port and future service port for the offshore wind industry":

• Direct access to the North Sea, no locks
• Within nautical range of planned wind farms (low costs)
• Tax advantages as tonnage tax regime for the operational vessels (ETR less than 5%)
• Competitive purchase and lease prices
• Multimodal accessability, close to airport and rail
• Sufficient paived/unpaived storage area available (also adjacent to quay)
• Heavy cargo storage areas and equipment available
• Development of a heliport (2016)
• Experience in recent offshore windfarm projects

What we are looking for

We would like to get in touch with visitors/exhibitors to inform them of all the opportunities and developments in the field of offshore wind in the Eemshaven.
