Logistics

Carrying out installation of foundations, turbines & cable systems correctly within time & budget demands a complex interplay of manufacturing, logistics, transport & installation. It calls for detailed planning, meticulous execution & the highest levels of flexibility, because when the weather changes, plans for vessels & work teams must often be rethought at short notice.

In the early planning stages of your project we develop an appropriate logistics concept. The base port chosen for heavy lifting transhipment must have good hinterland connections and be at a strategically convenient distance to the location of the offshore construction site. This reduces transit times and so the costs. Good infrastructure links to manufacturing locations & temporary storage areas near to base port are further success factors, since they permit just-in-time production & flexible transhipment. Short distances by waterways are ideal, because they enable economical & rapid delivery of components by pontoon or barge.

During the construction phase our experts develop a logistics system individually for your particular project. The selection of suitable vessels, storage areas & transhipment capacities involves specifying load instructions for the project cargo for submission and acceptance by the insurers. Our experts have successfully completed a course on securing cargo for maritime transport in accordance with standards set by the “German Insurers Academy (DVA)” and the “German Insurance Association (GDV)”.

Our logistics professionals provide you with on-site support when it involves coordination, surveillance & documentation of all supplier shipments or the deliveries to the installation vessels. We would be pleased to handle the complete organisation and execution of Port Operations for you.
