Under the contract, Sif will use 113KTon of steel for manufacturing the monopiles and will store them at the MV2 facility in Rotterdam in 2020-2021.

“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.”

Vattenfall is the winner of both the Hollandse Kust (Zuid) I & II and Hollandse Kust (Zuid) III & IV offshore wind tenders, which mark the first Dutch zero-subsidy projects.

Each of the four zones is expected to have a 350MW capacity scheduled for grid connection in 2022.
