Boskalis: Acquire $50M of Marine Transport contracts – but no seismic
Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) has recently been awarded a number of marine transport contracts with a combined contract value of approximately USD 50 million.
Dockwise, a wholly-owned Boskalis subsidiary, was awarded a contract by Husky Oil Operations Ltd. for the transportation of the West White Rose Topside from Texas, USA to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The contract includes the engineering, preparation and execution of the loading, transport and discharge operation of the topside. The topside will be skidded onto a large barge, which in turn will be floated onto the semi-submersible heavy transport vessel Dockwise Vanguard that will transport the cargo to Newfoundland and Labrador. The transport is expected to take place in 2021.
Dockwise was also awarded a contract by Lamprell Energy Ltd. for the transportation of 36 jackets from the construction yard in Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates to Vlissingen, the Netherlands. The jackets will serve as foundations for the East Anglia offshore wind farm development. Two semi-submersible heavy transport vessels will be deployed for this contract.
