Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) announces that Dockwise has recently been awarded numerous new contracts valued at US$175-million for heavy marine transport as well as transport and installation (T&I) services.

Various short term heavy marine transport contracts were acquired, primarily for the transportation of jack-up rigs, and all due to commence in the next couple of months. Included in these contracts is the transportation of large, state-of-the-art new built rigs from Singapore to Brazil in 2013/14 on the Dockwise Vanguard.

Furthermore, four long term heavy marine transport contracts were acquired of which two also include a float-over T&I component. Dockwise will transport a jacket and topside unit for delivery in Malaysia and install the 15.000 MT topside through a float-over (2015); transport a fixed production structure on behalf of Statoil from Korea to Norway (2016); and Dockwise will execute the installation of the topside for the Aasta Hansteen development in the North Sea through a dual barge float-over (2015).

The remaining heavy marine transport contract will involve the Dockwise Vanguard, the world's largest semi-submersible heavy lift vessel which will be deployed for the transportation of a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading unit (FPSO) from the Far East to West Africa (2016).

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. is a leading global services provider operating in the dredging, maritime infrastructure and maritime services sectors. They offer a wide variety of marine services and contracting for the offshore energy sector including subsea, heavy transport, lifting and installation (through Boskalis Offshore and Dockwise) and towage and salvage (through SMIT).
