Jan De Nul selects BOW Terminal Eemshaven yard for two wind farms

The BOW Terminal marshalling yard in Eemshaven has been selected by Jan De Nul Group for the Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 wind farms.

Danish renewable energy behemoth Orsted Wind Power is the owner and developer of the 242 MW Gode Wind 3 and 900 MW Borkum Riffgrund 3 wind farms.

Beginning this summer, construction on both wind farms will take place in the German North Sea. Full commercial operation is anticipated in the early 2025. When fully operational, these wind farms will provide enough electricity to supply 1.2 million German homes for a whole year.

A total of 107 monopile foundations and secondary steel from the yard will be transported and installed by Jan De Nul Group. Each of the 106 monopiles for the wind turbines and the offshore substation weights roughly 1,500 tons in total.

BOW Terminal Eemshaven

These marshalling services are provided by BOW Terminal at their new location in Eemshaven, which is situated in the Beatrix harbor in the northern region of the Dutch province of Groningen. This new location was made possible by the long-term lease of the Terminal at the Wilhelminahaven. In a very short period of time, BOW was able to create another terminal that could handle huge loads. The entire dock and the location are capable of supporting 30 tons/m2. The project will be completed here. On behalf of BOW Terminal, Q3 Heavy Lift will handle the logistics tasks at the terminal.
