Roermond, the Netherlands 25 October 2018. Sif Holding N.V. announces that Ørsted has awarded to Sif the production of 47 monopiles (approx. 40 Kton) for the Borssele I-II offshore wind farm.
Rotterdam aims to become Europe’s leading offshore port. The Rotterdam Offshore Wind Coalition, a group of Rotterdam-based frontrunners in the offshore wind sector have announced their shared ambition to play a leading role in this industry. Collaboration, sharing success and innovation are three key spearheads that enable the partners to realise projects on a range of different scales.
A look from the sky at our unique terminal with marchalling facilities at the Port of Rotterdam (Maasvlakte 2): 16,5 meter draught; deep sea quay 400 meters length; permanent lift - and transport capacity of 1.600 tons; storage area of 42 hectares and direct access to the North sea.
In storage: Monopiles and Transition Pieces for Hohe See and Norther wind farm and piles for the Johan Sverdrup field.
The board of Norther Wind Farm visits the Sif factory where the transition pieces and monopiles are fabricated. Koen Baeten, QA manager Norther: ‘Monopiles of 8 meter diameter, 80 meters long and total weight of 1000 tonnes: that is really impressive’!
Slip Joint Offshore Research (SJOR)-consortium tests innovative connection offshore: successful, ready-to-use installation within the hour.
Dragados Offshore from Spain and Sif Netherlands b.v. have signed a contract for the supply of legs, caissons, and piles for the two jackets of the Tyra Future Development Project. Both jackets will be installed in the Danish part of the North Sea, 225 km west of Esbjerg. Together they contain more than 10 Kton of steel, while the piles contain 8 Kton of steel.
On 25 May the load-out of the DOT monopile took place at the Sif quay-side on Maasvlakte II. The deepwater construction vessel (DCV) Aegir of Heerema Marine Contractors has loaded and installed this special monopile together with the customer Delft Offshore Turbine and their subcontractor CAPE Holland.
