Sif delivers the 2000th monopile
For 75 years we have been innovating and building the foundations of a sustainable future for future generations. Sif continues to develop products and services in order to continue to meet market demand. Wind farm developers can come to us for foundation design, fabrication, corrosion protection and logistics services such as storage and transshipment. With the recently announced expansion on Maasvlakte 2 and the associated advanced production processes and resources, we can make monopiles with a diameter of up to 11 metres. This means that the current annual production capacity of approximately 220 kilotonnes (approximately 1900 MW offshore wind energy capacity) in Europe will be increased to 500 kilotonnes (approximately 3000 MW offshore wind capacity) by 2025.
Sif is also taking important steps with regard to its own emissions. Since 2019, we have been generating our own green electricity with GE's Haliade-X wind turbine, which is located on our property, and we heat our welds with induction. Our production process is continuously optimized in terms of safety, efficiency, quality and impact on the environment.
In cooperation with customers, we are open and honest because we want to think along about solutions that ensure a more effective product and/or a more efficient process. We try to inform our customers at an early stage about the consequences of their (technical) choices regarding the resulting costs of the production or installation process.
Our employees are driven and focused on quality. Through teamwork, decisiveness and imagination, we ensure that we make an impact together. Sif offers a stimulating working environment with room for growth. Sif is continuously looking for highly qualified employees, suppliers and other business partners who share our vision: making an impact on the energy transition.
Sif is gradually becoming a “total solutions” partner that offers design engineering, high-end manufacturing and other related parts required for a complete latest generation monopile foundation including foundation, tower and turbine logistics and marshalling services
We want to be the best monopile solution provider through innovation, engineering and excellent manufacturing with commitment to the environment and our employees’ well-being, all as confirmed by our customers.
Accelerate the growth of offshore wind power generation as a key driver of the world’s energy transition.
While Sif traditionally serves the North-Western European markets, we consider the offshore wind market as an increasingly global. Sif is gradually developing its global presence.
