Michel Kurstjens, CCO Sif Netherlands about the Blueprint to Transition:
“The future is going to look different and we embrace that future. Sif supports it’s customers to develop offshore windfarms in Europe that don’t need subsidies anymore”
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.
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.
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’!
