Buss Terminal in Eemshaven will serve as base port for pre-assembly and installation of rotor blades, nacelles and towers of the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm.

Starting in October 2022, approximately 210,000 m² of the 250,000 m² sized heavy cargo terminal are going to be occupied with components.

“We are delighted to provide our areas and services for this large-scale project to CrossWind. This underlines the combined strength of our project team in Hamburg and our purpose-built terminal in Eemshaven”,
