New production hall for XL monopiles
Sif is market leader in producing foundations for offshore wind farms and the oil and gas industry. It was crucial to prevent idle time and unsafe situations in the new production factory of Sif Netherlands on Maasvlakte 2. On account of its experience of heavy, dynamically loaded structures, Iv-Consult was asked by Sif to perform a conceptual study as an alternative to the existing preliminary design. The study not only looked for cost-saving alternatives, but also focused on the system producing the highest reliability and safety for the crane runways and supporting structures. The outcomes of the study resulted in radical changes to the preliminary design.
