    Fourteen years ago in 2002 the Sif Group made 80 monopiles for the Horns Rev wind farm off the Danish coast near Esbjerg. These piles were four metres in diameter, the thickness of the steel was five centimetres, and they weighed between 180-230 tonnes depending on their length. In 2016, Offshore WIND was invited to visit the new Sif Group production, storage and load-out terminal built on Maasvlakte 2, the new area of reclaimed land extending the Port of Rotterdam even further out into the Southern part of the North Sea.
