Some old news, but still and interesting project. Buss Port Logistics has successfully completed the near-shore logistics and storage operations for the Veja Mate offshore windpark.
The offshore team managed the project and was responsible for all handling and shipping of the 67 monopiles – that each weigh up to 1.300 metric tons, from receipt at the factory in Rostock up until delivery to the installation vessel at the company's own Orange Blue Terminal (OBT) in the Dutch Port of Eemshaven.
Watch the video and pictures below:
Boskalis is close to completing one of its latest and most significant offshore wind projects - Veja Mate, in the German North Sea.
The project involves handling and installing the biggest monopiles in the industry – weighing between 1,230-1,302-tonne a piece – using the biggest pile gripper frame and pile driving hammers in the industry with a brand new vessel, which also happens to be the biggest in the sector.
Once complete, the offshore wind farm will produce over 1,6 TWh of green, renewable electricity annually. SOURCE: Boskalis
