Offshore Wind activities in port of Esbjerg
Blue Water secures new activities to the port of Hirtshals by signing new contract, with Spanish company, for transport of wind components
As part of the strategy within Blue Water’s Energy division, it has been a goal to secure more business related to Upstream Wind Components. Through a close cooperation and a good relation, Blue Water has succeeded in closing regular business with our new good client and partner Conecta Logistics & Engineering, a Spanish company partly owned by manufacturer WEC (Wind Energy Casting).
“In Blue Water we have a strong local partner in Denmark to handle our shipments with great dedication and professionalism, and this has been really important to us”, says Diego Rueda, General Manager at Conecta.
The vessels are being loaded with wind components in Bilbao, Spain and sailed to Hirtshals, where Blue Water is responsible for vessel discharge, cargo handling and inspection.
“It is really great to see these vessels coming into Hirtshals. It has been important for us to secure new activities in Hirtshals - for us and for the local community”, says Bent Rasmussen, General Manager, Blue Water Hirtshals.
After discharging the vessels, Blue Water is also taking care of the delivery to different destinations in Denmark. This is done with open trucks as the cargo dimensions exceed three metres in width and height.
“We received the inquiry from Conecta early this year and have now handled more than 230 components and eight vessels. Everything went well, and all deliveries have been done in time and to the client’s satisfaction”, says Allan Dahl Leiberg, Operations Manager Oil, Gas & Industrial Projects, Blue Water Esbjerg.
