The electric power supply of the future will be defined among other things by the use of offshore wind power. The seaports of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) provide strategic hubs for the installation and subsequent maintenance and supply of the offshore wind power farms in the North Sea. The seaport locations in Lower Saxony are a reliable partner of the wind energy branch, providing ample infrastructure capable of handling heavy loads as well as innovative logistics and service concepts.
The production of the offshore components in close proximity to the ports ensures short transport routes by land thus creating a potential to save both costs and time. In the Lower Saxon seaports there are extensive potential areas available for companies and suppliers of the onshore and offshore branch to settle.
