Eemshaven. Once the land of peat and agriculture. Nowadays more and more of new energy. Not only from offshore wind energy, but since September also from LNG via the EemsEnergyTerminal, a Gasunie subsidiary. This means that the Netherlands is one step closer to independence from Russian natural gas. The terminal will run at full capacity this winter.
Over the past 15 years, Wagenborg has built up an impressive track record in logistics for various offshore wind farms in the German Bight. In doing so, the company is making a significant contribution to the transition to sustainable energy. And in 2018, Wagenborg is once more at the basis of a new offshore wind farm, the Borkum Riffgrund 2 – and this time that means literally! Wagenborg has been contracted by the Jan de Nul Group to transport the foundations for 36 wind turbines. Each foundation consists of a monopile, a transition piece, and an anode case. In addition, Wagenborg also transported a special pile driver and a “noise mitigation system” for installing the foundations.
