Rhenus Offshore Logistics is starting up its operation of two new offshore supply bases at the ports of Great Yarmouth and Aberdeen. The new sites are maintained through cooperation with local partners and realised through the recently opened UK office of Rhenus Offshore Logistics.

Rhenus Offshore Logistics offers turnkey offshore logistics solutions to the offshore energy market in Europe and the UK. The cooperation agreement for the new offshore bases was confirmed in December 2016 and comprises the provision of fully-integrated on- and offshore logistics packages in Great Yarmouth and Aberdeen.

The supply bases provide cost-effective storage, cargo handling, offshore-certified container handling and provision, quayside management, stevedoring and all supply chain activities. The concept of the new supply bases is to provide a foundation from which Rhenus is then able to support and offer a comprehensive logistical package with the core concept being cargo runs, supplying offshore assets with whatever is required to keep them functioning.

After a successful track record through supplying around 90 % of all German wind farms since 2014, Rhenus Offshore Logistics entered the UK market in 2016 by opening its own representation in Lowestoft, near Great Yarmouth on the Eastern coast of Suffolk.

“For Rhenus Offshore Logistics, this is an important step in our UK growth and provides us with the scope and facilities required to supplement our service package. Supply runs and offshore logistics are our core business. However, this new venture supports our scope and enables us to offer the full logistical solution as well as coordinate all activities in-house, which is important to us,” said Greg Howlett, UK Business Development Manager for Rhenus Offshore Logistics.
