Dutch logistics outfit Xellz has named its planned offshore wind supply base in Ireland the Rosslare Europort Business Park (EBP).
Xellz acquired 200,000 square metres at the port of Rosslare in February to establish the base, which has now been split into five zones.
All five zones are situated alongside a new planned access road to the port and have direct link to the quay, making them suitable for operations such as pre-assembly and mobilisation, Xellz said.
The company’s offshore services subsidiary 24shore and Xellz Ireland will establish the base, which could serve projects in the Irish and Celtic Seas.
Xellz chief executive Petrus Bouwhuis (pictured) said: “Today marks the real beginning for this development to serve the future offshore wind farms in the Irish and Celtic Sea.
“EBP’s land gives direct access to the quay for loading and offloading of offshore wind equipment, and we are now ready to talk to interested parties.”
