About Heliport

About Heliport Eemshaven

Heliport Eemshaven is certified as international heliport and thus is the ideal gateway for transport and supply flights to offshore projects in the Exclusive Economic Zone in the North Sea.

The infrastructure, including a take-off and landing area, is located in the north-western part of Eemshaven, close to the Borkum ferry service of AG “EMS” Borkumlijn.

The total site covers an area of approximately 4.5 hectares, of which approximately 1.35 hectares is airfield. As well as a helicopter landing area, the site contains helicopter parking stands, an administration office and a fuel station.

Heliport Eemshaven is operated by Ems Maritime Offshore (EMO). Owner of the infrastructure is Groningen Seaports.


An increasing number of companies working in the offshore industry are using Eemshaven as a base for their activities. Companies in this sector provide long-term employment as not only the construction of wind turbines, but also the service and maintenance, can be carried out from this base.

It is necessary to use helicopters in addition to ships for the transport of personnel and tools because of the large distances to e.g. offshore wind farms. 

An extremely precise roadmap was followed for the choice and construction of the heliport, both for the immediate surroundings (residents) and for the flora and fauna (Wadden estuary).

With the realisation of the heliport, Eemshaven is strengthening its strong position as a base and service port for the offshore industry.

Future Development

Heliport Eemshaven offers individual development options. In the future, an extension of the take-off and landing zone and the construction of a check-in hall and hangars are conceivable.
