BOW Terminal takes position in Eemshaven
By signing the purchase agreement for a total of 22ha of land in Eemshaven the Flushing based company BOW Terminal has definitively decided to expand their future offshore wind activities with a new logistics hub in the Eemshaven, based in the northern part of Groningen, The Netherlands.
In view of the energy transition in Western Europe and the number of project planned in the area this expansion is a logical step to suit the needs of our clients, says Managing Director Ludolf Reijntjes: “We have had several positive sessions with Groningen Seaports and we are both confident that this new terminal will be an additional asset for the market. With this new facility BOW Terminal will focus on four markets: heavy lift, decommissioning, oil & gas and off course offshore wind”.
The new terminal will be located directly along a 525 meters mostly prioritized quay at the Wilhelmina Harbour. The quay strength of this prioritized part will be upgraded to 10 tons/m2. With a water depth of 16 meters the Wilhelmina Harbour has the highest water depth in Eemshaven and is therefore suitable for deepwater vessels. The new BOW Terminal facility will be operational Q2 2019.
“BOW Terminal Eemshaven will provide its clients with a team of local experts in the field”, says Reijntjes which means that there will be opportunities for local companies and residents.
