The decline was largely due to lower results at the Dredging, Maritime Infrastructure and Dry Infrastructure segments.

 Peter Berdowski, CEO of Boskalis:
"In the prevailing market we had a fine performance in the first half of the year with record revenue and an all time high order book. In addition, the utilization level of the dredging fleet was good. We are clearly reaping the benefits of the addition of SMIT - both in terms of the financial contribution and with respect to new market initiatives, particularly in the field of Offshore Energy.
 
For the remainder of the year our well-filled order book bodes well for the utilization of the vessels. Market conditions are not expected to change substantially in the short term. We see opportunities particularly in the offshore energy market and in port developments."
