BOW Terminal, based in Vlissingen, will open a new logistical hub in the Eemshaven, in the north of the province of Groningen. BOW Terminal and Groningen Seaports will officially sign a contract for the purchase of 22 ha in total during the Offshore Energy Exhibition in Amsterdam on 23 October.
The companies already signed a letter of intent (LOI) back in September. The terminal will be built directly along a 525-metre quay in the Wilhelminahaven, in the eastern part of Eemshaven, which has good accessibility for the large, deep water installation vessels. BOW Terminal will have a first option on a 220-metre quay that will be upgraded to a load capacity of up to 10 ton/m² to support the heavy, mainly offshore wind, components in the future.
From here BOW Terminal will build further on their experience in four focus markets, being heavy lift, decommissioning, oil & gas and offshore wind. With the projects planned in this section of the North Sea and the energy transition in general in Western Europe, the decision is a logical step for BOW Terminal. BOW Terminal will use local expertise at the new terminal. Photo: Groningen Seaports
