Mid July 2016
On 24 October 2015, the first stone for the new Sif location at Maasvlakte 2, Rotterdam, was lain. The founders of Sif were the guests of honour at the foundation stone laying ceremony.
This marks the laying of the foundation for the new production facilities where Sif is able to assemble and coat parts, while it also provides more storage capacity and boasts a unique heavy load quayside measuring 400 metres.
This enables Sif to produce more and larger monopiles.
Monopiles, tubulars, jackets, and other offshore components will be processed at the new location and delivered to clients.
With the acquisition of the new production facility at Maasvlakte 2, we can further optimize our production flow with shorter lead times and higher production outputs.
Every step of production, from steel sheets to rolled tubulars and complete monopiles, is done in-house at our two production locations.
Since the new location at Maasvlakte 2 was selected at the start of 2015, the advantages that this location offers in terms of the production of our monopiles, tubulars, and other components has become increasingly clear.
Sif can now produce monopiles up to 11 metres in diameter as well as coat its monopiles on location in Rotterdam.
The new location also has 40 hectares of storage capacity which we will gladly make available to our clients.
At the start of 2015, Sif started its search for a profitable expansion of its production capacity for offshore foundations.
Sif notably required expansion in terms of the production of monopiles and other tubulars for offshore wind farms, and also for the oil and gas markets.
As a result, Sif started looking for the perfect strategic location where clients and projects would receive optimum service.
