Lubbers opens a branch in the Eemshaven (NL) 
 
Schoonebeek, July 2021 
 
As of August 1, Lubbers Logistics Group will open the doors of a new location at Westlob 3 in Eemshaven, Netherlands. Our location is located at the premises of company Wijnne Barends. 
 
From this facility, we will serve the local market in and around the Eemshaven. Due to the presence of trucks and trailers at this location, we are able to respond quickly to requests. The facility will also fulfill a supporting function within the European groupage network. Groupage loads that have been collected or have to be delivered in the Eemshaven, Delfzijl or Farmsum region will go through this location for (temporary) storage or transshipment. We also rent offshore containers from this location. 
 
Initially, a number of truck-trailer combinations and truck-mounted cranes will be installed at our new facility. But the facility and organization are prepared for a possible scale-up, extra staff and equipment can be mobilized quickly from our head office in Schoonebeek if necessary. For example for large projects. The planning remains in Schoonebeek for the time being. 
 
If you have requests or bookings for local, national or international transports, you can reach us via csd@lubbers.net.

OWIC launches Power Cable Centre in Eemshaven 
 
Eemshaven, June 14, 2021
 
The Offshore Wind Innovation Centre (OWIC) has developed an innovative plan to set up a power cable service centre in the port of Eemshaven:  Cable Centre Eemshaven (CCE). Cable Centre Eemshaven will offer specialist training and education in the field of power cable installation, maintenance and repair. Service companies within the power industry can also use Cable Centre Eemshaven for their storage, testing and maintenance needs. The affiliated companies are all located in or close to Eemshaven and offer a wide range of services. Cable Centre Eemshaven focusses on all aspects of the cable installation & maintenance process, both on- and offshore. 
 
Four OWIC-partners are the drivers behind the Cable Centre initiative: WIND, DHSS, HICE and Lubbers Logistics Group. These service companies have found each other through their professional disciplines and many years of cooperation in the on- & offshore energy industry. 
 
By combining the available knowledge & experience and offering the power cable industry a complete service package, Cable Centre Eemshaven can be a great added value for any power cable project. These projects often start by exploring opportunities and considering pros and cons. Cable Centre Eemshaven supports companies in this process and offers practical solutions. 
 
Companies in search of (project-) support for their cable activities can expect an independent approach in which Cable Centre Eemshaven meets the customer’s needs. It means all available services and companies in Eemshaven will be taken in consideration in order to supply the best solution’, according to the initiators. 
 
The initiative is supported by Groningen Seaports and Regional Education Centers (ROC’s) as Noorderpoort. The ROC’s will develop a specific cable technician training. Theory training will be given at Cable Centre Eemshaven, which is located at the Nijlicht office- & conference building in Eemshaven. This location is also Eemshaven’s central knowledge and information centre. 
 
The practical training and exams will be given at the OWIC-partners locations. For a complete list of OWIC-partners, please visit: www.tcnn.nl/innovatieprogramma-s/overzicht/owic 
 
The development of a theoretical and practical trainings location in Eemshaven should ultimately provide employment for people from the immediate vicinity. With full focus on the upcoming projects, the required services and the objectives from the climate agreement, this initiative will ensure much more technically trained personnel from which all companies located in Eemshaven should benefit.
