October 25 (Renewables Now) - Dutch steel tubulars manufacturer Sif Holding NV (AMS:SIFG) has won a contract to supply half of the monopiles needed for the 752-MW Borssele I&II offshore wind complex.
Sif Holding will produce and deliver 47 monopiles using its new assembly facility and deep-sea quay on Maasvlakte II at the Port of Rotterdam. It expects to execute the contract next year.
The Borssele 1 and 2 offshore wind parks will be located off the coast of Zeeland in the Netherlands and will use 8-MW Siemens Gamesa 8.0-167 DD wind turbines. Danish offshore wind developer Ørsted SA (CPH:ORSTED) won a tender for the two Borssele areas in the summer of 2016. Construction of the plants is slated to begin in 2020.
Last week, Dutch marine contractor Van Oord said it had secured a deal to provide cable installation services this project.
