MHI Vestas, Eneco Get Their Own Boat Landings in IJmuiden

Port Authority Zeehaven IJmuiden N.V. has constructed three new boat landings for MHI Vestas Offshore Wind and Eneco, as a response to the major increase in the transport of the two companies’ maintenance crews and staff to and from their offshore wind farms. 

These new boat landings make it easy and safe to step from the quayside onto the windcats, crew transfer vessels that make direct physical contact with the boat landing or landing platform.

MHI Vestas recently began using a new extension to the industrial building and offices for its third maintenance team. Eneco has also moved into new offices in IJmuiden for the maintenance of the Prinses Amaliapark wind farm and to oversee the construction of the new Eneco Luchterduinen wind farm.

Two operational wind farms are located in the North Sea off the Dutch west coast: the Windpark Egmond aan Zee (OWEZ) with 36 wind turbines and Prinses Amaliapark with 60 turbines. A third offshore wind farm, Eneco Luchterduinen is currently under construction off the coast at Zandvoort.

Zeehaven IJmuiden N.V.  stressed that the construction of two wind farms with an output capacity of 700 MW each off the coast of the Province of Zuid-Holland in 2017 and 2018, and another one off the coast of the Province of Noord-Holland in 2019, offer good opportunities for the company and for other specialist companies located in the region.
