The Construction of foundation excursion is fully booked!

Steelwind Nordenham GmbH

Steelwind Nordenham GmbH is a Dillinger Group company located in Nordenham. The company began manufacturing monopiles and transition pieces in 2014, and now also produces single-piece monopile foundations with unit weights of up to 2,400 tons. The single-piece monopile replaces the previous design with a separate monopile and transition piece by integrating certain parts of the transition piece into the monopile. The monopile can then be up to 120 meters long. The steel for the monopiles comes from Dillinger, Europe's leading heavy plate manufacturer, located in Saarland. SWN currently employs 275 people.

The hydrogen excursion is fully booked!

PEM-Elektrolyseur, Hydrogen Refueling Station, HY.City.Bremerhaven GmbH & Co. KG

HY.City.Bremerhaven is realizing the establishment of the first hydrogen ecosystem along the entire hydrogen value chain in Bremerhaven with private sector involvement.

At the Grauwallring site in the Speckenbüttel industrial estate, a 2MW PEM electrolyzer is being built under an existing wind turbine to produce green hydrogen.

This hydrogen will be stored in compressed form in trailers using a filling system. HY.City.Bremerhaven is building a public hydrogen refueling station in front of the BremerhavenBus depot. This H2 filling station will be supplied with the trailers and the H2 buses of BremerhavenBus will be refuelled here in the future in order to realize climate-neutral and low-noise mobility in public transport.

This pioneering achievement by seven companies/partners was awarded the Bremen Environmental Prize in October 2023.

Starting point: 2:00 p.m.

Hermann-Henrich-Meier-Str. 1, 27568 Bremerhaven
