deugro and NORDFROST Cooperate on Green Energy Logistics Hub in Wilhelmshaven

To meet the rapidly increasing demand for sustainably generated energy, and its associated need for sophisticated logistics concepts for the storage and transport of components, deugro and NORDFROST are pooling their strengths in a strategic cooperation. With the Green Energy Logistics Hub, the energy sector is being served from and to Wilhelmshaven on land and water.

A holistic concept, the Green Energy Logistics Hub mainly addresses clients from the onshore and offshore wind energy industry as well as grid-related players from the converter stations, substations, cable business, and transformers sectors, among others. The new logistics centre will primarily serve the Central Europe region. The joint offer includes the handling and storage, consolidation and commissioning of components, as well as condition inspection including photo documentation, packing and stowage/unloading of containers, import/export clearance and other logistics services at the NORDFROST terminals in Wilhelmshaven.

The strategic partnership of the two owner-managed family companies, with nearly 150 years of combined experience in port handling and project logistics, creates a multitude of synergies for clients. With tide-independent access from the North Sea and direct, traffic-light-free hinterland connections to the German freeway, the logistics concepts via Wilhelmshaven offer considerable potential for cost and time savings. The existing port handling capacities guarantee an optimal process flow, while expansion options will be able to increase flexibility in clients’ supply chain.

NORDFROST will be responsible for the handling of the components at its terminals with its own heavy lift equipment such as heavy lift cranes, reach stackers, and forklifts, as well as other lifting and handling equipment. Further special handling equipment required by the client will be mutually organized by both partners.

As part of the cooperation, NORDFROST will provide an about 150,000m² supervised and protected logistics area at its two Wilhelmshaven port locations, with a total area of 40 hectares for the joint hub activities, unrestricted access for ocean-going vessels and direct hinterland connections to the German freeway and the European rail network.
