cargoes agreed to redevelop 12 ha of industrial estate and 1,555 m of quay in the port’s Waalhaven area. “Here, heavy lift specialists RHB


Stevedoring and Broekman Logistics will each expand their terminal with extra quay length and terminal area at the cost of a container terminal area,” said Timmers. “Construction works and upgrading of the current facilities will commence in 2019 and will take some two to three years to finish.” Metaal Transport and JC Miejers will also


be able to transfer and develop some of their breakbulk operations thanks to the agreement. “With this, together with the companies


involved, we have shown that we are giving the breakbulk sector in Rotterdam plenty of space,” said Emile Hoogsteden, director of containers, breakbulk and logistics at the Port of Rotterdam Authority. “This mainly involves heavy lift, project cargo, steel and non-ferrous metals.” He added: “The investment that these


companies and the port authority are now going to make will provide an extra incentive to make Rotterdam the breakbulk hub in Europe.”


Acquisition Broekman Logistics has also been busy expanding its activities in the Benelux region through the acquisition of VLS-Group’s warehousing activities in Belgium and the Netherlands. “This acquisition, the largest in our nearly 60 years of existence, marks a major milestone for Broekman Logistics,” explained ceo Raymond Riemen. “By adding 150,000 sq m of storage


space, our covered warehouse portfolio increases by over 40 percent, while we grow our employee base significantly.” VLS-Group’s five locations spanning


Antwerp, Belgium, and Rotterdam-Pernis will operate under the Broekman Logistics brand and will be fully integrated into the company’s warehousing and distribution division. “We now operate state-of-the-art warehouses in all the major logistics hubs and gateways into Europe: the port of Rotterdam, the port of Antwerp and the Limburg area,” Riemen added. In Rotterdam, the port authority is also


currently developing a new location for the Offshore Centre Maasvlakte, within the Maasvlakte 2 area of the port. “Here, a dedicated terminal will be


created for the offshore wind projects, decommissioning projects, and act as a location for mobilisation and demobilisation of offshore vessels. Discussions with market players are now under way and we hope to

conclude negotiations shortly,” explained Timmers. There is a broad consensus that offshore


wind energy is a booming source of project work in the Netherlands. The sector forms a critical part of reaching the country’s ambitious energy goals. According to the Nederlandse WindEnergie Associatie (NWEA),the country is progressing towards a completely renewable energy supply by 2050. In order to meet these targets, NWEA


said the government’s current energy agreement needs to be implemented. Another strategy needs to be established covering the 2020-2030 period, and legislation is required to facilitate offshore wind energy projects. Five 700 MW offshore wind energy


projects are earmarked for development up until 2023, three of which have been tendered, with the winning bids put forward by Ørsted, Bluewind and Vattenfall. For the Borssele 1&2 offshore wind


farms, Ørsted awarded GeoSea, part of the DEME Group, the contract to transport and install 94 foundations. The turbines will be installed at the project sites, located 23 km off the Dutch coast.


Wind turbine vessels Under a separate contract, A2SEA, a subsidiary of GeoSea, will provide the vessels to transport and install 94 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines. The monopile foundations will be installed in water depths ranging from 14 m to 36 m during 2020 by vessels from the GeoSea fleet. With plans afoot to add a further 1 GW of

offshore wind capacity every year from 2023 to 2030, with the possibility of increasing this target to 2 GW each year, the sector shows no sign of slowing down. Ports and terminals in the Netherlands


play an important role in the construction of offshore wind farms, in both the pre-assembly of components and facilitating the installation operations with the berthing of offshore vessels. Targeting the offshore wind business in the Netherlands, BOW Terminal has
