Service port with a future
EMO’s base Eemshaven offers logistics facilities on 3.5 hectares in Beatrixhaven Ideal conditions for service and maintenance in the operations phase of offshore projects. Ships up to a draught of about 4 m can find suitable berths on the 150 m long pontoon feeder. A pier for handling larger seagoing vessels is already in the planning stage. The base is located in immediate proximity to the heliport and the public railway for passenger transportation and is thus a perfect hub for material and personnel on the way to and from the offshore wind parks. The deep sea port of Eemshaven now has a water depth of 11 metres. In the near future this will be increased to 14 metres.
Offshore Service Base
After the foundation stone has been laid in May 2016, the new Offshore Service Base at Beatrixhaven is now ready for service. The buildings and grounds are spread across an area of 3,500 m2; the construction itself consists of office and hall areas totalling 1,000 m2. It completely fulfils the requirements for an offshore wind park service hub.
Since January 2018, the second warehouse and office building is also ready for operation and expands the location. The site at Beatrixhaven, not far from the AG “Ems” Borkumlijn, still offers some construction areas and free spaces. Up until now, EMO has invested approx. EUR 3 mio. into the location.
EMS Maritime Offshore operates the new heliport in Eemshaven. The commissioning of the heliport will further strengthen Eemshaven's position in the offshore wind sector. The helicopters handled there can be used for the maintenance of wind turbines on the high seas, ambulance and trauma flights. On average, up to 15 flights per day are expected.
