Bremerhaven fully supports the offshore industry and is well prepared for its advancement. For the production, supply, storage, logistics as well as servicing and maintenance of offshore wind turbines, suitable areas are available in the industrial area Luneort.
With a view to meeting the future demand for sector-specific industrial sites, some 160 hectares can be provided in the Luneplate area. With the construction of the Offshore Terminal Bremerhaven and the associated closure of the regional airport Luneort, further space for commercial development (about 120 ha) can be offered.
At the same time, this provides for ideal access to the planned Offshore Terminal Bremerhaven (OTB). At present, BIS is implementing a package of traffic accessibility measures in the Luneort/Luneplate industrial zones. A southern bypass road is being built to skirt the existing Luneort industrial park, as an extension of the B71 motorway approach road. It will cross the Lune River with two bridges and end at the airport. The construction work is planned to be completed by the end of 2015. Part of the road “Am Luneort” will be developed to carry heavy loads up to the runway of the airport by the end of 2013.
From the road “Am Luneort”, the heavy-load section will be routed via the runway, which is 1 200 metres long and 30 metres wide, and directly over the dike to the planned OTB over a ramp constructed in the form of a bridge. Construction is scheduled to begin at the end of 2015.
