The announcement came just one day after Vattenfall was awarded the tender for the Hollandse Kust (zuid) 3 & 4 wind farm zones. Vattenfall already won the bid for Hollandse Kust (zuid) 1 & 2 in 2018.
Sif’s scope comprises manufacturing of the monopiles (a total steel volume of 113 KTon) and storage at the Maasvlakte 2 facility in Rotterdam in 2020-2021. Two zones (75 Kton, 76 monopiles) were already included in Sif’s orderbook as projects under exclusive negotiations.
Fred van Beers; CEO of Sif comments; “Our manufacturing facilities in Rotterdam are ideally situated for North Sea offshore wind projects. For the Hollandse Kust Zuid project Vattenfall/Nuon has valued this in their bid- evaluations. We are grateful for the confidence our client has expressed in their project- award to Sif and together
with their representatives we will put every effort on the timely delivery of time-critical project- parts. Our orderbook for the period 2020- 2021 is now filling up to approximately 300 Kton of which 80 Kton in exclusive negotiations.” Image: Sif
