Papendrecht, 3 July 2014
Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) announces that VSMC, its strategic
cable-laying joint venture with VolkerWessels, has been awarded a contract by

Wind Farm. The project has a total contract value of EUR 110 million (Boskalis
share EUR 55 million).
VSMC will perform two 1,100-meter horizontal directional drillings at the
landfall in 2015, followed by the installation of two 42-kilometer export
cables in 2016. The scope of work also includes the design, supply,
