Cuxport will be responsible for receiving and storing products, packing and unpacking, and loading and unloading vessels docking at Cuxhaven port. The "long-term" contract will begin in May this year.

The port will serve the BorWin 2, HelWin 1 and 2, and SylWin 1 converter platforms, built by Siemens, which support German North Sea offshore wind projects. It served as a base port during the installation of the platforms.

Siemens handed over its first German North Sea grid connection, HelWin1, to grid operator Tennet in February.

HelWin 2 and SylWin 1 are expected to begin operation soon. SylWin 1 will serve the DanTysk, Sandbank and Butendiek wind farms, which together comprise 240 turbines and represent a generating capacity of 864MW.
