Terminal Operation

Next to Steelwind’s fabrication yard is a quayside of 200 m length which can be accessed 24/7 to receive goods and materials or to load-out products. The total mooring length is 250 m. The complete quayside area can bear loads of up to 100 t / m².

Operator of the heavy lift terminal Blexen is Saar-Rhein Transportgesellschaft mbH.

The quayside at the River Weser estuary can be approached from the North Sea without nautical difficulties or obstacles (e.g. locks or bridges). However, on the Weser exists compulsory pilotage. The minimum water depth directly at quayside is currently 6 m LAT. The tidal hub is 4 m, so the maximum temporary available water depth is 10 m LAT.
