Home port of the offshore wind energy industry
Bremerhaven is an important competence centre for the offshore wind energy industry. Today more than ever, the expansion of renewable energy, in particular the development of wind energy on land and at sea, is an urgent necessity in order to achieve the goals of reducing CO2 emissions, to implement a successful energy turnaround, and to make a significant contribution to the battle against climate change.
Under these premises, it will be necessary for coastal locations to provide suitable areas and optimized port infrastructures for transhipment in the future – for the purposes of turbine production, recycling and repowering.
In respect of the development of areas, Bremerhaven is on the right track: with the LUNE DELTA, it is developing a sustainable business park of 150 ha and can already offer appropriate plots of land.
For the transhipment of components for offshore wind turbines (foundation structures, towers, nacelles, rotor blades) as well as other elements for offshore wind farms (transformer stations), the quays in the Labradorhafen basin, in the southern area of the container terminal and at the so-called ABC-peninsula in Bremerhaven have been used up to now.
Plan approval decision: December 2015
Start of construction: has taken place, currently halt of construction because the project is complained
