Multifunctional port facilities are available for mooring transport ships, tugs, pontoons, and floating cranes upon implementation of the terminal extension by four additional berths.
Components such as rotor blades, nacelles, hubs, and towers as well as other heavy cargo can be handled in the terminals. The entire offshore terminal II area is designed for loads of ten
tonnes per square meter. The port facility is accessed via a 60 m wide dyke ramp that was also designed for heavy goods traffic.
Expansion of the offshore base in Cuxhaven is a project that extends far into the future in light of energy and economic policy goals of “climate protection”, “supply security” and
“conservation of resources”.
Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co.KG, the city of Cuxhaven, and the state of Lower Saxony are already in the process of planning additional industrial sites and developing them in line
