Sif launched the monopile at the beginning of this millennium and has now produced over 2,200 monopiles.
These monopiles contribute to the energy transition by serving as the foundation of offshore wind energy. However, we think this is not enough and we have chosen Sustainable Development Goals created by the United Nations that will guide our ESG improvement.
