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.
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.
