Optimization of Offshore Capacities: Mukran Port receives new heavy load slabs

Sassnitz-Mukran, February 22, 2017 - Offshore logistics = heavy load logistics. An efficient port infrastructure is required for the increasing wind turbines (WT) with their components, which include, among others, transition pieces, rotor blades or tower segments. For this reason, two berths are being upgraded with new heavy load slabs in Mukran Port for their use in the construction of the wind farm „Arkona-Becken Südost“. The project financed by E.ON and planned by KMT Port from Hamburg will be realized by Colcrete - von Essen for Fährhafen Sassnitz GmbH. The conversion of a previous RoRo ramp for berth 7a, which has already been started, as well as timely construction start of such an area at berth 10 will soon enable to handle the WT with dimensions beyond 7 MW at the Mukran Port.
