Sif news

In February 2015 Port of Rotterdam and Sif Group met during an exhibition in Hamburg. In June of that year the two parties signed a contract for the construction of the 500 meter long assembly- and the 120 meter long coatinghall from Sif.

Sif loaded the first monopiles on a seagoing ship on 2 January. This was accomplished with the Innovation, a jack-up vessel from Geosea, which is part of the Belgian DEME Group. With this step, the first part of the new deep-sea wharf at Maasvlakte 2 was put into service.

In connection with the Dudgeon project, Sif took a Norwegian delegation from Statoil on a visit to the regent’s room and to see the carillon in Roermond's city hall.

Sato Tekko from Japan and Sif Group will jointly participate in the Tokyo Wind Exhibition that is scheduled for 1- 3 March 2017. Both companies will jointly manage a booth to present their cooperation to the offshore wind audience at the exhibition.

To us, Sif is the initialization for Schmeitz Industriële Fabrikage. During the Hamburg WindEnergy expo we spoke with the proud father of a girl named Sif who told us the name is quite common in Scandinavian countries. 

On 4 September 2016, the first sections for monopiles arrived at the new Sif assembly facility in Rotterdam.
