Dutch firm signs Rosslare windmill deal

[ February 25, 2020   //   ]

Dutch-owned Project freight management company Xellz has secured 200.000sq m next to the port of Rosslare in southern Ireland as a base for construction of four offshore wind farms in the locality.

The prime site is immediately adjacent to the port and gives direct access to the quay for loading and off loading of equipment as well as pre-install assembly. In addition, there is over 100.000sq m available for small and medium enterprises that wish to get involved in the near future renewable projects.

Xellz president and chief executive Peter Bouwhuis (pictured) said:  “We are very excited to have been able to secure this land which will give us the opportunity to start the development of the port area and to make it ready for the near future offshore windfarms in the Irish and Celtic Sea.”
