The Buss Orange Blue Terminal and Senvion have signed an agreement for the Nordsee One offshore wind farm. Buss will take care of all services upstream of and at the Dutch terminal: from planning, transport and interim storage on the terminal premises to pre-assembly and subsequent delivery of the components to the quayside.
From February 2017, the total of 378 main components - comprising 61.5 metre-long rotor blades, up to 118 tonnes of tower segments and 350 tonnes of nacelles - will be gradually delivered to the Orange Blue Terminal. To transport the components to the storage area, they are using a modular vehicle with 24 axle lines and its own propulsion system. Buss will pre-assemble the rotor stars at the storage facility, while the 65-metre-high towers will be set up directly at the quay edge using heavy load platforms with a capacity of 20 tonnes per square metre. Here, the installation vessel will jack itself up and load the prepared components. The wind farm is scheduled to be ready for operation by August 2017.
