Euroports Group and Port of Hanko have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to create a distinctive wind hub at the Port of Hanko located in Koverhar, Finland. This initiative aims to position the harbour, which is situated in the southernmost part of the country, as a central location in the offshore wind supply chain, addressing the critical challenge of providing sufficient and dedicated space.

Spanning 600 hectares, Koverhar Harbour is a unique port facility, with 90 hectares dedicated to port activities. It is ideally equipped to handle major wind turbine projects. The partnership between Euroports and the port represents a significant investment in renewable energy infrastructure, positioning Koverhar to become a pivotal hub for the entire Baltic Sea region.

The initiative goes beyond just addressing logistical challenges. It aims to create an entire green ecosystem within the extensive back-land area. With Euroports’ deep and long-standing experience as a terminal operator coupled with a strong track record in both onshore and offshore wind industries, the team is capable of handling the full value chain, including freight forwarding through Europort’s subsidiary Manuport Logistics.

“The Letter of Intent with the Port of Hanko enables us to expand our business in renewable energy,” says Petteri Sammalisto, Commercial Director of Euroports Finland. “By creating a unique wind hub here, we’re not just addressing the immediate needs of the wind energy sector; we’re fostering a sustainable ecosystem that will serve the Baltic region and beyond.”

“A partnership of this magnitude with Euroports underlines our dedication to renewable energy and environmental stewardship,” says Anders Ahlvik, CEO of Port of Hanko. “Port of Hanko and especially Koverhar is a perfect harbour for the assembly and storage of wind turbine components.”

As this ambitious project unfolds, both Euroports and the Port of Hanko are committed to transparency and engagement with all the stakeholders involved. This Letter of Intent is not just a promise for a greener future but a practical step towards achieving it, leveraging Koverhar Harbour’s strategic location and expansive infrastructure to meet the growing demands of the renewable energy sector.
