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.

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. 

This year during WindEnergy in Hamburg, Sif organized a buffet dinner for the first time, on Wednesday 28 September, with as discussion topic ‘Standardization of the transition piece. Why not?’. 

Our world and our climate are changing. Due to the climate change, the need to find and exploit new, sustainable energy sources has become increasingly important. For companies and public authorities, it is not only necessary to respond to new developments, but also especially important to anticipate them. This is what minister Kamp of Economic Affairs envisioned to achieve when he introduced a new tendering scheme earlier this year: the SDE+ scheme.

Despite an extremely challenging schedule, Sif was able to deliver all monopiles to Rampion on time. 

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.
