Transport links

Close ties

The industrial areas designated for the offshore wind industry, the planned OTB and the adjacent industrial estate are already superbly connected to the existing transport infrastructure. This will be further improved by additional road construction while the OTB is undergoing completion.

Inland waterways

The water-side connection to the Luneort industrial estate is currently at the Labradorhafen port 200 metres away. The maintained depth of the Labradorhafen currently measures 7.6 metres below the mean harbour water level.

There are public heavy-load handling facilities at the head of the port and on its eastern and western sides. The link for inland waterway vessels from Bremerhaven is via the Lower Weser to Bremen, and from there via the Middle Weser and the Mittelland canal, or the Lower Weser, the river Hunte (as far as Oldenburg) and the coastal channel, to the German and European inland waterway network.

While the Lower Weser and Hunte rivers are passable for seagoing ships of up to 11.1 or 4.2 metres draught if the tide is in, the Middle Weser and the Mittelland canal are passable only for inland waterway vessels (“Europa ship” size) with maximum dimensions of L/W/D = 85/9.5/2.5 metres (in the medium term for large inland freight vessels with maximum dimensions of 110/11.4/2.5 metres). The coastal channel is passable for vessels of up to L/W/D = 85/9.5/2.5 metres.

Roads

Bremerhaven lies on the A27 autobahn, accessible via the B6 and B71 motorways. From Bremerhaven, the distance for heavy-load transports to the autobahn approach road is 2.5 kilometres, with a journey time of five minutes.

The Am Luneort main access road in the commercial area is a private road (owned by the State of Bremen) that is open to public use. Here the advantage is that special vehicles do not require a permit to use it.

There are no bridges with restrictions on axle loads on the roads connecting the Luneort industrial area to the A27 autobahn. The Am Luneort-Deichhämme-Weserstrasse B71 section of road and the Seeborg B71 section of road are suitable for all licensed axle loads. All of these roads have been resurfaced.

An alternative route is possible in the event of disruption.

Rail

The distance from the Luneort industrial estate to the nearest marshalling yard / Deutsche Bahn (DB) rail network (Wulsdorf is a connecting station to the DB network) is approx. 3.5 kilometres.

Air transport

The international City Airport Bremen is 58 kilometres away. Journey time by car is approx. 45 minutes.

The Sea-Airport Cuxhaven/Nordholz has a direct connection to the A27 autobahn. Conditions here are ideal for business and charter travel and island air transport.
