Jan De Nul Picks BOW Terminal Eemshaven as Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 Marshalling Yard
Jan De Nul has selected BOW Terminal’s marshalling yard in Eemshaven, the Netherlands for the Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind projects.
The 242 MW Gode Wind 3 and 900 MW Borkum Riffgrund 3 wind farms are owned and developed by Danish renewable energy giant Ørsted Wind Power A/S.
Both wind farms are to be built in the German North Sea, starting this summer, with full commercial operation scheduled for early 2025. Once in operation, these wind farms will generate enough electricity to power approximately 1.2 million German households a year.
Jan De Nul is in charge of the transport and installation of a total of 107 monopile foundations and secondary steel from the yard.
BOW Terminal will offer the marshalling services for the project at their new location in Eemshaven, based in the Beatrix harbour in the northern part of the Province Groningen. This new location was created because the Terminal at the Wilhelminahaven has been leased for the long term. BOW was able to develop another terminal suitable for heavy loads in a very short time, the company said.
Both the entire quay and the site where the work will be carried out are suitable for handling 30 tons/m2. Q3 Heavy Lift will take care of the logistics activities at the terminal on behalf of BOW Terminal.
Jean Pierre van Lieshou, General Manager at BOW Terminal, said: ”We are proud to be carrying out our first project in Eemshaven at the Beatrix harbour. We are convinced that we can bring the project to a successful conclusion together with all parties involved.”
