Boskalis awarded two offshore projects with combined value of €85 million
Royal Boskalis Westminster has been awarded two offshore contracts with a combined value of approximately €85 million (US$94 million).
In Taiwan, the company was awarded a contract by Yunneng Wind Power Company for the scour protection for the Yunlin offshore windfarm. Boskalis will install rock on the seabed around the 71 monopile foundations serving as scour protection.
In total 325,000 tonnes of rock sourced from local quarries in Taiwan will be installed using a fallpipe vessel. The project is scheduled to commence early 2020 and is expected to be completed late 2020.
Boskalis has also secured a contract from the Danish Energinet Gas-TSO for the laying of a new four-kilometre-long gas pipeline from Jutland to Funen in the Lillebaelt of Denmark. The project includes the pre-trenching, pipe-pull, cofferdam construction and post-lay rock installation to protect the pipeline.
The vessels to be deployed on the project will include a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD), a fallpipe vessel, and a backhoe dredger.
