HAMBURG – Buss Terminal in Eemshaven has been awarded with another project contract: Start May Eemshaven will serve as base port for installing foundation structures of the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm. Approximately 140,000 m² of the 250,000 m² of the heavy cargo terminal will be occupied.

The wind farm located in the North Sea – is approximately 89 km off the Yorkshire Coast. “We are delighted to provide our services for this large-scale project to Deme Offshore in the UK. This underlines the combined strength of our project team in Hamburg and our terminal in Eemshaven”, comments Martin Schulz, Managing Director of the Buss Energy Group, about the upcoming project.

The wind farm of the Danish energy group Ørsted will count 165 Siemens Gamesa 8-megawatt turbines. With a total capacity of almost 1.4 gigawatts, it will supply up to 1.3 million households with green energy. The Hornsea Two wind farm will span an offshore area of 462 km² and will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world in 2022 when fully operational.

Buss Terminal Eemshaven won the tender offer issued by DEME Offshore in February and is now responsible for the handling, storage and terminal logistics of the 165 monopiles and transition pieces at its own terminal site. The monopile foundations of the wind turbines weigh up to 1,230 tons. This equals the weight of approx. three fully loaded Boeing 747-400 aircrafts.
