DEME Picks Hornsea Two Foundations Base Port

The Buss Terminal Eemshaven, in the Netherlands, has secured a contract to serve as a base port for installing the foundations of the Hornsea Two offshore wind project.

Under the deal secured with DEME Offshore, the Buss Terminal is responsible for the handling, storage and terminal logistics of the 165 monopiles and transition pieces at its terminal site.

Approximately 140,000m² of the 250,000m² of the heavy cargo terminal will be occupied.

“We are delighted to provide our services for this large-scale project to Deme Offshore in the UK. This underlines the combined strength of our project team in Hamburg and our terminal in Eemshaven,” said Martin Schulz, Managing Director of the Buss Energy Group.

Hornsea Two is located 89km north-east of Grimsby in the UK and will comprise 165 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines scheduled to be commissioned in 2022.

EEW will manufacture and deliver the 165 monopile foundations, which DEME Offshore will transport and install with its new DP3 offshore installation vessel Orion at the 1.4MW project.

The Danish Bladt Industries is providing 135 transition pieces. EEW Special Pipe Constructions is supplying the remaining 30 and has recently upended the first piece.
