BOW Terminal has signed a letter of intent to open a new logistics hub in the Port of Eemshaven, in the northern part of Groningen, the Netherlands.
According to Ludolf Reijntjes, Managing Director at BOW Terminal, both space and logistic possibilities to expand are substantial for the company.
In cooperation with Groningen Seaports, BOW Terminal plans to set up the hub on 27ha land space behind a 220 metres deep sea quay, where the depth is at 16,00 metres NAP.
“These main specifications combined with the local maritime and logistical knowledge in the area must result in a modern hub for the offshore wind business, as well as all relevant connected activities to the offshore wind farm industry. The coming years we will focus on the supply chain of these wind farms,” Reijntjes said.
The news comes shortly after DHSS announced it will build an offshore wind farm service hub at an A1 location in Beatrixhaven, at the heavy cargo quayside in the Port of Eemshaven.
On 21 September, Groningen Seaports officially transferred the A1 location of 10,000m² in Beatrixhaven to Bek & Verburg, with whom DHSS will construct the new offshore service base. It is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2018.
