Opposite the port, the north shore is dominated by the giant Tata Steel complex, which has its own quays for incoming raw materials and outgoing finished steel products. Meanwhile, the impressive lock gates of the North Sea Canal offer access to hinterland destinations including Amsterdam.

Growth Development of the port really took off after the opening of the IJmond Harbour in 2005. This allowed the port company to widen its scope of activities and begin to attract companies involved in the wind farm construction sector. Already, the port

has played a key role in the construction of two offshore wind farms, with many of the blades and turbines being assembled on shore ready for transport to the wind farm.

Growing demand In 2012 the turning circle in the IJmond Harbour was widened from 220 to 295 metres, leaving the way clear for the construction of the new Felison Cruise Terminal at the head of the harbour –a clear sign of the growing demand from cruise ship operators for facilities to allow them to call IJmuiden.

Prudent investment pays big dividends Prudent investment by Zeehaven IJmuiden N.V. over the past decade has positioned the Port of IJmuiden to become a leading player in the maritime and offshore sectors of the Dutch North Sea region. The principal investment began in 2005 with the development of the IJmond Harbour, with first-rate waterfront facilities and extensive areas of land for development. This was the start of an exciting new time for the wind farm construction industry. The new harbour also created new opportunities in other sectors. And, combined with improvements to the port’s access for shipping, it paved the way for construc-

Accordingly, in 2010 the port company put a lot of work and investment into the port’s International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) certification and recertification of the quays in order to continue to meet international safety standards. This ensures that port users and customers continue to have confidence in this aspect of its operations.

Perfect base for wind farm projects With its long and fruitful history as a support and supply services base for the oshore oil and gas industry, it was a natural progression for IJmuiden to become involved in the oshore wind farm sector as well following the opening of the IJmond Harbour in 2005. Since then, the harbour has been used for two major wind farm projects, in 2006 and 2008, with materials and equipment being stockpiled, assembled, loaded and shipped to offshore sites using local expertise and handling equipment. The success of these ventures has helped the port build a reputation for smooth and seamless operations that is expected to attract similar projects in the coming years.

Wind parks In addition, once the wind parks have been built, they require regular maintenance and support. They also need to be serviced by special vessels of a very different type from those normally used in the North Sea oil and gas industries. The IJmond Harbour is ideally suited to this activity. About 60,000 square metres of open storage has been reserved at the IJmond Harbour for wind farm-related activities. The quay is designed to withstand loads of between 16.5 and 23.5 tonnes per square metre depending on the position. Two specially reinforced

concrete platforms, each measuring about 15 metres by 12 metres, are used for loading wind turbines.

Outlook The Dutch government has ambitions to install 950 MW of wind turbine power in the short term with a further 6,000 MW in the long term by 2020. The Vestas consortium of turbine manufacturers and the civil engineering company Ballast Nedam won the concession for Offshore Windpark Egmond aan Zee, which was completed in December 2006. The towers and other components for 36 wind turbines of 3 MW each were assembled onshore at the IJmond Harbour and shipped to the wind park, 15 km off Egmond aan

Promising The Port of IJmuiden sees this as a promising market, based on its positive experience in dealing with this kind of assembly and construction project. There are also many opportunities in the UK sector of the North Sea. The higher costs resulting from longer distances from IJmuiden would be offset by the lower up-front port costs and the efficiency gains already made in IJmuiden.

Key players in offshore industry Serving the offshore industry has been an important business activity for the Port of IJmuiden since the late 1960s.

Clusters In addition, there are clusters of smaller service and supply companies that work together to provide a full range of services to the offshore sector – a kind of one-stop shop, but with each company in the cluster acting as an independent operator. As well as ASCO Holland, the informally named IJmuiden Port Services group is another example of this type of operation. This group is able to offer a wide range of services, from electronics to engineering and from logistics to towage.

Location provides key advantages for cruise lines A significant rise in the number of cruise ship calls in recent years is a clear sign of the special advantages offered by the Port of IJmuiden. The port has expanded its facilities to handle this growing demand, with a purpose-built new terminal opened in 2012. The port welcomed 44 cruise ship calls in 2012 and about 50 calls have already been booked for the 2013 season.

also the closest port to many of the offshore wind farms,

in 1876 the area that now includes the town of IJmuiden was sparsely populated. The only routes for inland maritime trade were via Den Helder to the north and Rotterdam to the south. The North Sea Canal revolutionised the way trade was conducted in the Netherlands. The entrance to the canal was initially used by fishing vessels plying their trade in the North Sea. This traffic attracted traders and led to more fishing vessels and further growth. Gradually, the maritime and fishing community that was to become the Port of IJmuiden began to evolve.

Key location that shaped history of town and port IJmuiden has a relatively short history as a town and a port, having been created only in 1876 after the opening of the North Sea Canal. The name IJmuiden simply means ‘mouth of the IJ’. The North Sea Canal links the North Sea with the IJ Bay, the body of water where Amsterdam is located.

New barge terminal will boost frozen fish traffic The opening of a new dedicated terminal in the Haringhaven is expected to produce a dramatic rise in the amount of frozen fish being transported in containers. The new terminal, which entered service in July 2011, is operated by Container Stevedoring Ymuiden (CSY), a joint venture by Zeehaven IJmuiden N.V. and the Amsterdam-based Ter Haak Group.

At the same time, new logistics concepts are being investigated to further expand the potential of the terminal. CSY will play a significant role in the transhipment of frozen fish in the future. The new facilities have been built to speed up the process of supply and transport of these containers.

Key advantages behind fish auction growth The favourable location of IJmuiden in relation to the fishing grounds is a chief reason behind the growth in sales enjoyed by the fish auction, Hollandse Visveiling IJmuiden BV (HVIJ), a wholly owned subsidiary of Zeehaven IJmuiden N.V.. HVIJ aims to provide ‘value over volume’, which seems to be a recipe for success at a time when landings at all Dutch fishing harbours are down as a result of European Union quota restrictions. While volumes have, in fact, increased in recent years, IJmuiden’s market share has also increased by up to 10 per cent per year, helped by the decision in 2008 to

introduced in 1998, is now the largest fresh fish auction in Europe. HVIJ has used it since 2008 and Zeehaven IJmuiden N.V. is one of its owners. Buyers can bid at multiple auctions simultaneously without moving from their office. This reduces the need for traders and produces better prices for the local fishing communities. The system provides details including time of catch, location and fishing method. Information on price trends and fluctuations in supply can also be accessed.

Waterfront location is key asset for steel works Tata Steel in IJmuiden manufactures hot rolled, cold rolled and metallic coated steel for many industries in Europe and beyond. Formerly known as Koninklijke Hoogovens, the IJmuiden Steel Works was established in 1918 on the north bank of the harbour mouth. This location gives the IJmuiden plant a key advantage because Tata Steel is able to receive raw materials such as iron ore and coal directly on its premises.

Deepsea Bulk carriers of up to 200,000 dwt capacity can be accommodated at the plant’s deepsea quays, while

With its main steelmaking operations in the UK and Netherlands, the company supplies steel and related services to the construction, automotive, packaging, lifting and excavating, energy and power, aerospace and other key markets worldwide. The combined Tata Steel group is one of the world’s largest steel producers, with an aggregate crude steel capacity of more than 28 million tonnes and some 80,000 employees across four continents.

Investing in confidence and capacity The dynamic climate of investment now being enjoyed by IJmuiden is due in no small measure to the redevelopment and restructuring work that has been carried out in many under-used areas of the port and town.

Principally, this has involved reviewing how certain areas of the port are used as well as relocating some companies. For example, businesses in quayside locations that do not make use of them
