Soon in the Eemshaven two huge wind turbines will be erected from the type Repower 6 M (6.15 MW). This type of windmill is mainly used for offshore wind farms far outside the German and Dutch coasts. Because of further research, testing and development of offshore wind turbines, two wind turbines will be placed on land in the Eemshaven at windmillsite “Westereems” of RWE / Essent. One of the windmills will be placed on the property of Wagenborg Stevedoring.
Last week the two Repower turbines arrived by vessel in Eemshaven with mv Mississippiborg of Wagenborg Shipping. With assistance of a large crane crawler (750 ton capacity) from Wagenborg Nedlift all components of the wind turbines could be unloaded.
In the next weeks the assembly and installation of the windmills will take place with one of Europe’s largest cranes.
