Euroports Group and Port of Hanko Ltd have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to establish a Unique Wind Hub at the Port of Hanko port area in Koverhar. This initiative positions the Harbour, situated in the southernmost part of Finland, as a central place in the offshore wind supply chain, tackling the critical issue of providing ample and dedicated space.

Spanning 600 hectares, planned for industrial use, of which 90 hectares dedicated to port activities, Koverhar Harbour is uniquely equipped to facilitate major wind turbine projects. The partnership between Euroports and the Port of Hanko signals a significant investment in renewable energy infrastructure, setting the stage for Koverhar to become a pivotal network hub across the whole Baltic Sea region.

The initiative aims beyond the logistical challenges, aspiring to cultivate an entire Green ecosystem within its considerable back-land area. This includes progressive discussions with a leading steel manufacturer and an H2 producer, highlighting a holistic approach to sustainability and innovation.

Euroports’ deep and long-standing experience as terminal operator, associated with a strong track record in handling wind components, allows our teams to handle the full value chain, including freight forwarding with our subsidy Manuport Logistics.

“The Letter of Intent with the Port of Hanko enables us to expand our business in renewable energy” says Petteri Sammalisto, Commercial Director of Euroports Finland. “By creating a Unique Wind Hub here, we’re not just addressing the immediate needs of the wind energy sector; we’re fostering a sustainable ecosystem that will serve the Baltic region and beyond.”

“A partnership of this magnitude with Euroports underlines our dedication to renewable energy and environmental stewardship,” says Anders Ahlvik, CEO of Port of Hanko. “Port of Hanko and specially Koverhar is a perfect Harbour for the assembly and storage of wind turbine components”.

As this ambitious project unfolds, both Euroports and the Port of Hanko are committed to transparency and engagement with all stakeholders involved. This Letter of Intent is not just a promise for a greener future but a practical step towards achieving it, leveraging Koverhar Harbour’s strategic location and expansive infrastructure to meet the growing demands of the renewable energy sector.
