The approval of a new heliport in the Netherlands at Eemshaven is in place following contract signatures on 18th December. Groningen Seaports owns the infrastructure that is needed for the functioning of the heliport, the official opening of which is scheduled for summer 2019. The approvals specify a maximum of 15 return flights per day.
The landing and landing site is located in the northwestern part of the Eemshaven, close to the ferry service to Borkum. The total site covers an area of around 4.5 hectares, of which 1.35 hectares is aerodrome.
In addition to an approach point, the site has two parking spots and a terminal building. It is possible that buildings will be added in the future, such as a hangar or office spaces.
Groningen Seaports states that the heliport is needed due to the increased work volume with windfarms, particulary noting that companies in this sector have involvement across many years for both construction phase as well as ongoing support when energy production is put online.
