Port of Nordenham
The seaport of Nordenham which has two terminals, one in the city port Nordenham and one in the neighbouring town Blexen is one of the largest privately-operated public seaports of Germany. Located directly on the deep fairway of the Außenweser (outer Weser) the port serves as a transshipment centre for goods of all kinds, in particular coal, mineral oils, timber, steel products and project cargo. Furthermore, the seaport Nordenham has established itself as a service port as well as a production site for the offshore wind energy branch.
The many significant, large-sized industrial companies which are based in Nordenham also participate to some extent in transshipment in the port. The pier facilities are equipped over the entire length with rail sidings, the city terminal has an electrified railway connection. The main road 212 links the port (optimised by the Weser tunnel) with the national road network. Nordenham is connected with the major inland waterway channels of Europe via the Mittelweser.
