Buss Attends Dutch Offshore Wind Power Event

Buss Attends Dutch Offshore Wind Power Event

Buss will be presenting itself and its offshore activities at the world’s largest trade fair for offshore wind power, the 2011 EWEA OFFSHORE in Amsterdam, from 29 November until 1 December.

The port services provider has business locations on the North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts, which are ideally suited for handling and transhipping offshore wind turbines because of their geographical location and their infrastructure.

Offshore wind power is a promising source of energy, which will become more and more important. Buss has therefore been further developing its business sites in Eemshaven in the Netherlands and in Sassnitz on the German island of Rügen in good time.

The Buss Sea Terminal at Sassnitz was able to tranship the first test piles at Sassnitz-Mukran, the base port for the EnBW Baltic 2 wind park, starting at the end of 2010. The port has a quay, which is 365 metres long in total and has a maximum draught of 9.5 to 10 metres. The Orange Blue Terminal in Eemshaven, which also belongs to Buss, is located very close to 21 offshore wind parks in the North Sea. It has a maximum draught of 14 metres, a total quay length of 630 metres and terminal space measuring 219,000 square metres. The necessary heavy-duty equipment (cranes and SPMT) is available through a cooperation arrangement with an experienced and capable partner.

Representatives from the Buss business sites in Eemshaven and Sassnitz will be available to talk to international trade visitors on a joint stand in Hall 11, stand no. 11278. Buss and Sassnitz ferry port are also inviting people to a stand reception at 3 p.m. on 30 November. Customers, offshore companies, professional associations and representatives from the world of regional politics can discover more about the potential that Buss can offer in the form of base, production and service ports for offshore wind power projects.
