Offshore Energy

Versatile offshore fleet

Boskalis has one of the largest global fleets of specialized offshore vessels. The projects we carry out are diverse and range from transporting a drilling platform to installing an offshore production platform or an offshore wind farm. The diversity and complexity of the projects is a testament to the versatility and multidisciplinary employability of our fleet.

Challenges and pinpoint precision

Working within the Offshore Energy division means working on complex projects. No two days are the same. After all, offshore projects are tailor-made projects. Projects that are not only challenging due to the weight and size of the material and the load, such as Floating Production, Storage and Offloading units (FPSO), but also because of the pinpoint precision required that is often preceded by a year or more of preparation. A small deviation can have huge consequences, so each action needs to be meticulously coordinated and closely monitored.

A current project that is relevant to you as an offshore professional is the Veja Mate offshore wind farm. The Veja Mate Offshore Wind Farm is located 130 kilometers north of Eemshaven and will generate a total capacity of 400 MW. Boskalis and partner VolkerWessels are responsible for the design, procurement, fabrication, supply, transportation, installation and testing of 67 windfarm foundations. The contract carries a value of approximately EUR 500 million, in which Boskalis has a 50 per cent share.
