Sif Holding will manufacture 84 monopiles for the 800 MW Vineyard Wind Offshore Wind Farm in Massachusetts. Sif’s scope comprises manufacturing of the monopiles, storage at their MV2 facility and delivery by RoRo load-out via their deep sea quay side on transportation vessels in 2020-2021.

The planned 800 MW project will power over 400,000 homes and industries and is located 14 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard. It is the first project in a series planned to serve the state of Massachusetts that by 2035 will result in 3.2 GW of offshore wind generation capacity.

The installation of the monopiles is subject to a schedule that includes seasonal restrictions on pile driving activity as a protective measure for the highly endangered North Atlantic Right Whales. Sif will maintain a very strict manufacturing schedule of the monopiles to meet these seasonal restrictions. Sif’s ability and confidence to meet this schedule was an important consideration in being selected by Vineyard Wind.

Fred van Beers; CEO of Sif comments; "For Sif this is an exciting milestone in our continuous development as leading monopile manufacturer. By being part of the supply chain for the first large- scale windfarm to be built in the USA, Sif takes an important step towards growth into new markets. Our track record as a reliable quality builder of monopiles and our commitment to truly partner with our customers will assure we will turn this new project into a success for our customer whom we thank for their trust in Sif."
