Evidence of success
During one of the study visits to Emden, we went to the heliport of Helicopter Travel Munich (HTM) in Emden. Here we receieved a lot of information which was of great use for the development of the heliport near Eemshaven. If the heliport will be developed, Siemens will do the operation and maintenance from here to the Gemini Wind farm, which will include 70 fte.
