MHI Vestas Offshore Wind and BOW Terminal have announced an agreement that will provide the offshore wind turbine manufacturer with 20 hectares of land at the Port of Vlissingen in the Netherlands.

The companies confirm that up to 50 local jobs will be created from the new agreement, with the employment ramp-up beginning in fall 2018. The first project for MHI Vestas at Vlissingen, scheduled for late 2018, will be the Norther offshore wind park, located 23km off the Belgian coast and in close proximity to the new pre-assembly facility.The Port of Vlissingen is becoming an increasingly strategic location for Dutch offshore wind power plants as a significant portion of future projects are slated to be constructed there.
