Sif manufactures steel foundation piles (monopiles) for oil and glass platforms and offshore wind farms. We supplied 136 steel tubulars for the foundation jackets for the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, which were installed by Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) in the North Sea off Scotland.
The development of Centre Line Alignment for welding cans of large diameter tubulars is an exciting proposition for designers. This development allows for more weight-efficient designs, as the magnitude of any change in wall thickness may be increased and the design stresses associated with plate thickness transitions are reduced to yield longer design fatigue lifetime.
Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs praises Sif’s pioneering work at official opening of Maasvlakte 2 site
The Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs, Henk Kemp, opened Sif’s new assembly and coating site at Maasvlakte 2 in Rotterdam on Friday 29 September 2017. The minister was joined by Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam, and Jan Bruggenthijs, CEO of Sif.
After a successful first Talking Dinner in Hamburg, Sif once again acted as host for the second edition, which was organized on the 10th of October in Amsterdam with the discussion topic 'Floating Wind from Holland: Are the Dutch losing out on floating wind?’.
Century Wind Power Co. and Sif have signed a letter of intent confirming their objectives and are investigating the possibilities of a joint venture to offer and produce monopiles and transition pieces for the Taiwanese market.
