The upgraded manufacturing plant will significantly increase the total combined capacity of Sif to 500 kilotons a year and upgrade Sif’s capabilities to manufacture the equivalent of 200 XXXL, 11 meter diameter, 2,500 tons reference monopile foundations a year, the company said.

Two customers, one of them being Ecowende (a joint venture of Shell and Eneco), together have already committed to 348 kilotons of production (booked or in exclusive negotiation) bringing the present total orderbook to 662 kilotons. A long-term capacity reservation framework agreement with Equinor is also in place while a second long-term capacity reservation framework agreement is currently being negotiated, which signifies strong commitment from both our customers and the market.

Fred van Beers, CEO of Sif, said: "By constructing the world’s largest monopile foundation manufacturing plant and by implementing next level integrated manufacturing technology with second to none process and quality controls, Sif will live up to its vision and take a pivotal step in securing its next phase of growth. As a result of this investment, we will strengthen our absolute global leadership position as monopile foundations solutions provider, enhance our innovative skills and create long term value for all our stakeholders with a clear growth path in an accelerating global offshore wind market."
