Sif Group, the manufacturer of foundations for offshore wind turbines, announced that it has added Siemens as its second client for its marshalling activities at Maasvlakte. Marshalling is the industry term for the provision of logistics services and facilities during offshore installation projects . The new contract will start in 2021 and run until 2023.
In August 2019, the Port of Rotterdam Authority leased an additional 20 ha at Maasvlakte to Sif for marshalling activities. This lot is adjacent to Sif’s existing port site, which the firm uses for the assembly, coating and storage of foundations for offshore wind farms.
Sif’s first client for marshalling activities at Maasvlakte was Deme Offshore. This contract involved the provision of logistics services and facilities for the installation of monopiles at the Borssele 1+2 offshore wind farm.
