The corona virus (officially COVID-19) is spreading. No reason to panic, but it is important to take a number of measures to prevent the virus from spreading as much as possible. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) monitors the spread of the virus and indicates which measures (should) be taken. Based on those measures and the current situation, Sif has daily crisis team consultations. This resulted in the following guidelines. Because we operate on a daily basis, the guidelines below can be adjusted daily:

Für das SeaMade-Projekt wurde Sif von seinem Kunden DEME gebeten, alle Vorbereitungen für einen so genannten Schraubentest zu treffen. Bei diesem Test wird die Schraubflanschverbindung zwischen einem Monopile (MP) und einem Transition Piece (TP) überprüft, indem alle 128 Schrauben montiert und festgedreht werden.

Residents of the Netherlands are discouraged from visiting private occasions where groups of people are present. We follow this policy for all Sif employees. We take the following measures regarding work situations:

  • Only visits (at Sif or elsewhere) that are necessary for safety reasons or to keep production going (for example maintenance and repair) are allowed. Other visits or activities are suspended until further notice.
  • If business group meetings are planned, such as company visits, guided tours or presentations, they must be postponed until further notice or be offered in another way (online).
  • Physical meetings with more than 6 people are not allowed.


In general and for everyone: Try to communicate as much as possible via telephone, e-mail and Skype.

Offshore-Windenergie spielt für die Nachhaltigkeit unserer Energieversorgung eine bedeutende Rolle. Mit der Arbeitsgemeinschaft der niederländischen Offshore-Windindustrie- und Forschungspartner GROW arbeiten wir bei Sif intensiv daran, der Bedeutung der Windenergie gerecht zu werden. Als einer der Gründer von GROW freuen wir uns daher darüber, dass das Ministerium für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz uns voll und ganz unterstützt.
