The offshore expert MHI Vestas Offshore Wind increases its lease at the Danish Port of Esbjerg from 54,200 to 138,000 m². The space will be used for pre-assembly and shipment of offshore wind turbine components.

Since the company first moved into the East Port, five projects have been executed from there. Since operations have grown, MHI Vestas decided to more than double its presence at the Port of Esbjerg.

MHI Vestas Offshore Wind increases its presence at the Port of Esbjerg. The company was one of the first to move into the new East Port in 2013, and since then five projects have been executed from the facility, such as the Northwind project or Eneco Luchterduinen. Operations have continued to grow, and now MHI Vestas has decided to double its lease at the port. The site’s expansion will include an extra quay space for the execution of multiple projects simultaneously.

Pre-assembly for the 165 MW Nobelwind project in Belgium will commence at the Port of Esbjerg in June and on the 400 MW UK Rampion project in September.

“This will ensure we can minimise time spent offshore, and thereby reducing installation costs. We are preparing for a busy period where we will execute several projects from Esbjerg and we highly appreciate the infrastructure investment and the flexibility shown by the Port of Esbjerg in supporting our asset light operations,” explains Bo J. Bjerregaard, Director of Pre-Assembly & Projects at MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
