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.
