André Goedée, Chief Executive Officer of Dockwise, commented:
"Operating activity was markedly subdued in the first quarter of 2011, reflecting industry-wide conditions. However, Dockwise noted an upturn in enquiries through the period, and in recent weeks several have been successfully converted to backlog. New opportunities are predominantly sizeable Transport & Infrastructure projects suited to Dockwise's distinct capabilities, and we continue to be actively engaged in tendering. Taking into account newly announced additions, our backlog as of today stands well in excess of USD 425 million - a record for the company.
Reviewing the pipeline, it is evident that scale and complexity go hand-in-hand for major transportation assignments. These premium contracts are distributed throughout the world's basins, either as stand-alone projects or contained within major developments.  Dockwise is proving repeatedly that it has the global presence, expertise and vessels to secure the most difficult projects. The addition of our new "Type-0" vessel, where detailed engineering is progressing to schedule and budget and where we experience positive client interest, will give Dockwise a significant competitive advantage anywhere in the world."
