On Tuesday 19 April and Wednesday 20 April, the first 4 of 95 transition pieces for the first phase of Dogger Bank Wind Farm were loaded out at our yard in Hoboken. The transition pieces were shipped to Sif’s Maasvlakte 2 terminal in Rotterdam.

The Dogger Bank transition pieces have a diameter of 8 meter and weigh about 550 tons. That makes these transition pieces the widest and heaviest transition pieces ever manufactured in Hoboken!

In November 2020, the consortium Sif-Smulders was awarded the contract for the manufacture of all 190 monopiles and transition pieces for Dogger Bank A & B, the first two phases of Dogger Bank Wind Farm. In late 2021, the consortium was also awarded the contract for the third phase of the wind farm, Dogger Bank C.

Dogger Bank Wind Farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables (40%), Equinor (40%) and Eni Plenitude (20%).
