In the north of the Netherlands, only a few kilometers from the German border, the Buss Terminal Eemshaven is located directly at the estuary of the Ems River. This means that it is in the immediate vicinity of many projected and approved wind farms in the North Sea.

The Buss Terminal Eemshaven has an excellent location and optimal infrastructure. Due to the fast access to the open sea, only a minimum of territorial sea voyage is required. On the land side, the terminal is directly connected to the rail network via a railroad siding as well as to the Dutch national highways.
