Three logistics centres to be constructed in German single deep-water port
JadeWeserPort in Wilhelmshaven, Germany’s only deep-water port, is continuing to develop its infrastructure. By 2025, three cutting-edge logistics centres will be built at the Freight Village Wilhelmshaven, which is located close to the berths. The construction project will be implemented by P3 Logistic Parks, the Czechia-headquartered developer of warehouses for the logistics sector.
In early June 2022, Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven JadeWeserPort-Marketing GmbH & Co. KG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Federal State of Lower Saxony that is responsible for the marketing and management of sites for new businesses in the freight village in JadeWeserPort, signed the leasehold contract with P3 Logistic Parks, the Czechia-based specialist in developing logistic space.
According to the document, the commercial developer will construct thee modern logistics centres with a total area of 122,000 square metres in the 21-hectare site in the centre of the Freight Village Wilhelmshaven. Each warehouse will have a clear height of 12 metres, 17 ground-level gates and 111 dock levellers. Moreover, around 11,000 square metres of mezzanine and 7,000 square metres of office space will be built. This means that almost 140,000 square metres will be offered to the customers for renting. The project is to be completed in several stages by early 2025.
P3 Logistic Parks has already designed the project of the logistics centres to have some distinguishing features. “As developers, we are firmly convinced of the important role of the JadeWeserPort as a logistics location. It offers everything that internationally operating logistics companies need. It is not for nothing that the world’s largest container ships regularly dock here. To meet this demand, we have planned, among other things, larger gates in our halls that make it possible to store particularly bulky goods,” noted Sönke Kewitz, managing director of P3 Logistic Parks Germany.
Another special feature is the solar panels on the roof. “The installation of such a large photovoltaic surface on the roofs is a strong signal that it is also possible to work very sustainably in the field of real estate developments. The city and surrounding area will benefit via the further supply of skilled jobs,” added Andreas Bullwinkel, managing director of Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven JadeWeserPort-Marketing GmbH & Co. KG.
