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.
Entirely according to schedule, last month saw the installation and commissioning of the first three Siemens 6-MW turbines in Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, which are now providing electricity to almost 6,000 UK households.
The first segments for the BLUE Hammer by Fistuca BV, which Sif is manufacturing in collaboration with Huisman, are ready at Maasvlakte 2. The hammer will be the world's largest pile-driver hammer, being specially designed to drive the largest monopiles in the world.
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.
