Wind Energy – Decommissioning
Sif and Ballast Nedam, both based in the Netherlands, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), marking the next step in the process of developing a joint venture under the name of BNS Decom that specializes in the decommissioning of obsolete and aged offshore wind farms.
BNS Decom intends to revolutionize the decommissioning process for offshore wind farms, serving as the ultimate, turnkey solution provider for asset owners. In the proposed collaboration, Ballast Nedam takes care of all offshore operations, while Sif aims to take charge of receiving and processing decommissioned components for further re-use and recycling.
The business plan will be based on certain constraints ensuring that all offshore and onshore work can be carried out safely, efficiently, and in an economically viable manner. The ultimate goal is to deliver the best value to the asset owner.
