Jan De Nul chooses BOW Terminal Eemshaven for Ørsted projects
Jan De Nul Group has chosen a BOW Terminal as a marshalling yard in Eemshaven, in the Beatrix harbour in the northern part of the Province Groningen, for two Ørsted projects.
Construction on both the Gode Wind 3 (242 MW) and Borkum Riffgrund 3 (900 MW) wind farms will begin in the German North Sea this summer. Full commercial operation is scheduled for early 2025. Once operable, these wind farms will generate enough electricity to power about 1.2 million German households annually.
Jan De Nul Group will be responsible for the transportation and installation of a total of 107 monopile foundations and secondary steel. 106 monopiles will be for the wind turbines, and one for the offshore substation. Each monopile weighs approximately 1,500 tons.
This new location was created following the long-term lease of their Wilhelminahaven terminal. Both the 220-metre quay and the site are suitable for handling 30 tons per square metre. The Pernis-based company, Q3 Heavy Lift, will handle logistics activities at the terminal for BOW Terminal.
