With its membership, the deep-water terminal operator Cuxport confirms its commitment to the energy transition.
The AquaVentus funding initiative was founded in 2020 with the aim of installing hydrogen production and ten gigawatts of powerful offshore wind turbines in the North Sea by 2035.
One million tons of green hydrogen are to be produced on the high seas and transported on land every year.
As a partner in the AquaVentus initiative, Cuxport contributes its core competencies as a port logistics specialist for the development, implementation and coordination of complex logistics concepts for industrial projects at sea in the field of new energies. In addition, the multi-purpose terminal from Cuxport is available as a service port for maintenance, repair and installation.
“For us, the promotion of renewable energies and drives is an important step towards the further development of sustainable logistics. As a port logistics company at one of the central nodes for the production and installation of sustainable offshore energy generation on the North Sea, we want to play an active role here and help shape this future, ”says Hans-Peter Zint, Managing Director of Cuxport.
“We are very happy to welcome our new members to the AquaVentus family. By joining forces, we can not only implement production, but also transport and the necessary research in the field of green hydrogen. We are ready, now only politics is required ”, says Jörg Singer, Chairman of the AquaVentus Förderverein and Mayor of Helgoland.
