BLUE Piling Technology by Fistuca is an innovative technology that uses a combusted gas mixture to propel a column of water upwards. The column of water pushes the monopile down as it shoots up and drives the monopile further into the sea floor as it falls back down. The pile-driving technology produces much lower noise levels than conventional pile-driving and also minimizes fatigue to the foundation. The project will result in a direct reduction to the costs of installing wind turbines.

The number of offshore wind farms has grown considerably in recent years. In Europe, offshore wind grew by 25% in 2017. 

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.

In collaboration with various parties in the wind sector, including Sif Netherlands, this week the Dutch Government launched an international campaign entitled Wind & Water Works. This campaign was launched during an offshore wind energy masterclass organised by the Netherlands for ten guest nations. The name of the campaign conveys a clear message and reflects the expertise and professional approach of Dutch companies and government bodies in the field of wind energy at sea. Wind & Water Works demonstrates how Dutch companies are now applying their offshore expertise developed over many years to offshore wind energy.
