Blue Water BREB Settles in Cuxhaven Offshore Industry Centre
- Ports & Logistics
Blue Water BREB and Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG have signed a lease for port space near berth no. 9.1 in Cuxhaven, Germany.
Blue Water BREB will use the berth for transporting and storing of offshore and onshore wind energy components.
The leased space covers approximately 35,000 square metres in the middle of the German Offshore Industry Centre in Cuxhaven.
It lies directly adjacent to berth no. 9.1 with its 142-metre heavylift-capable quay wall and its waterside depth of 7.4 metres.
This is where Blue Water BREB – acting as a terminal operator and port agency – is looking to develop its business activities at its main location.
“After its establishment in late 2016, this is the first time that we, as Blue Water BREB, have signed a long-term lease for port space. We made a conscious decision in favour of Cuxhaven. We want to stay and grow here,” said Arne Ehlers, Managing Director of Blue Water BREB.
The main business activities of Blue Water BREB involve transporting and storing wind energy components. While its focus was initially on offshore wind energy, the importance of onshore transportation has grown in recent years, the company said. In total, more than 2,000 large-scale components are transhipped via Cuxhaven, including transition pieces, rotor blades, and nacelles.
“Blue Water BREB is a local, internationally active partner for growing transhipment activities. Together with our high-performing, reliable infrastructure, we’re ensuring that we have a lively port,” said Holger Banik, Managing Director of Niedersachsen Ports.
