Monday, 30 April, 2018 - 15:45

As of Aril 30th, Boskalis presents its integrated service portfolio for the offshore energy market under one single brand name. As a result, Dockwise, Fairmount and VBMS, subsidiaries of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V., will continue to offer their services under the brand name Boskalis.

Boskalis is a specialist within its respective marine contracting disciplines, with the ability to combine its offering. Boskalis is set to grow its presence in the offshore energy market. Supported by its financial strength, experience and expertise, Boskalis aims to strengthen its leadership positions in Marine Transport & Services and Seabed Intervention, and to expand its position in Marine Installation, Subsea, and Marine Survey. The latter supported by the recent acquisition of Gardline.

Commitment to the offshore energy market

As a response to the growing market demand for inspection, repair and maintenance of subsea offshore installation, pipelines and cables, Boskalis recently added two large diving support vessels (DSVs) and crane vessel Bokalift 1 to its fleet, to be employed both for oil and gas and for offshore windfarm installation projects.
