Monopile moves at Maasvlakte 2

January 5 - According to the Port of Rotterdam Authority, the first monopile has been loaded onto a sea-going vessel at Schmeitz Industriële Fabrikage's (Sif) new site at Maasvlakte 2.

Four monopiles were loaded for transport onto the ship Innovation - a heavy-lift jack-up vessel owned by Geosea, part of the Belgian DEME Group. The Port of Rotterdam claims it was also the first job handled at the new section of Maasvlakte 2's deepsea quay.

The Innovation left the quay the same night en route to a wind farm off the coast of the UK where it will be installing the monopiles. This operation will be followed by a number of similar transports over the next few weeks.
In the summer of 2015, Sif Group started on the development of a new location for its monopiles business unit at a 42 ha site on Maasvlakte 2. It has since taken its colossal assembly and coating hall into use. Work on the industrial site is expected to be finalised by July 2017.
