 Koninklijke Boskalis Westminster N.V. : Boskalis subsidiary Dockwise secures
       USD 175 million new contracts including a Vanguard FPSO contract

Papendrecht, 9 July 2013

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) announces that Dockwise has
recently been awarded numerous new contracts for heavy marine transport as
well as transport and installation (T&I) services. The contracts were awarded
since mid-June and carry a combined total value of approximately USD 175
million.

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. The Dockwise Vanguard will be deployed for
the transportation of a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading unit
(FPSO) from the Far East to West Africa (2016).

Boskalis' strategy is aimed at benefitting from key macro-economic factors
which drive worldwide demand in our markets: expansion of the global economy,
increase in energy consumption, global population growth and the challenges
that go hand in hand with climate change. These contract wins by Dockwise are
closely related to the increase in energy consumption.
