Sif & Smulders win Transition Pieces contract for Baltyk II & III in Poland

The consortium of Sif Netherlands BV and Smulders Projects Belgium NV will be manufacturing Transition Pieces for the Baltyk II and III offshore wind farms. The companies have signed a Capacity Reservation and Early Works agreement with the developer, an Equinor and Polenergia owned joint venture.

Bałtyk II and III are two separate projects with planned installed capacity of 720 MW each (jointly 1440 MW). The offshore wind farms are located approximately 37 km (Bałtyk II) and 22 km (Bałtyk III) off the Polish coast, in the Polish exclusive economic zone of the Baltic Sea.

100 Transition Pieces

The scope of work for the consortium of Smulders and Sif consists of fabrication of 100 Transition Pieces including shop design, procurement, construction, testing and commissioning.

Within the consortium Sif will manufacture the approximately 30 kton primary steel tubulars, including flanges, from their facility in Roermond, The Netherlands.

Smulders will perform the secondary steel scope, coating, electrical system and testing and commissioning. The secondary steel scope will be produced by the Polish facilities of Smulders. Final assembly will take place at the yard in Hoboken, Belgium.


The order for Transition Pieces is the second for Sif for the Baltyk II and III projects. Earlier this year, the company received the order for 100 monopiles.

“After we were awarded the manufacturing of the monopiles for the Bałtyk 2 & 3 project, I’m very pleased that we have now agreed the capacity reservation for the production of the transition pieces for this ambitious project. It is further confirmation of our strong relationship with Smulders as our joint venture partner and with Polenergia and Equinor as our esteemed client. With the 30 kton volume involved in this project, our production capacity for 2025 is now fully utilized.”
