Boskalis: Helps Windward Islands hit by Hurricane Irma





Helps Windward Islands hit by Hurricane Irma

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) has mobilized a transport vessel at the request of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment to provide aid to the Windward Islands of Sint Martin, Sint Eustatius and Saba which were severely hit by Hurricane Irma.

Yesterday Boskalis loaded 40 pallets (40 m3) of drinking water onto its vessel the Alpine in Curaçao and Aruba. In addition to its own cargo, Boskalis also loaded a substantial amount of cargo from third parties, including a large disaster relief container from the Red Cross containing dry food and 45 pallets of food and water from the Royal Netherlands Navy. The Alpine is expected to arrive at the scene on Thursday morning and will distribute the cargo among the three islands.
