Holding n.v. (Sif) has entered into exclusive negotiations for the delivery
of foundations to an offshore wind project in Japan.
The scope of work includes the fabrication of 33 monopiles and 33 transition
pieces (totalling 25 KTon steel). Sif stated that the current state of
negotiations has led to a pre-order of the steel for the project. Manufacture
of the foundation components and disclosure of project details is subject
to the issue of a Notice To Proceed by the client.
The announcement comes a few months after Sif opened a new office in Tokyo
and teamed up with local partner Sato Tekko to target the Japanese offshore
wind market. The office officially opened on 5th September 2019. Sif stated
that the move was a consequence of its closely following market developments
in Japan since 2015.
