Boskalis Wins EUR 90 Million Worth of Contracts in Nigeria

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. has recently been awarded a number of contracts in Nigeria with a total value of approximately € 90 million.  The largest contract was awarded by Prodeco International Limited and involves dredging and reclamation works for the expansion of the Federal Lighter Terminal and the Federal Ocean Terminal in Onne Port, which is managed by Intels Nigeria Limited, a large logistic service supplier to the oil and gas industry.

Boskalis will reclaim approximately 180 hectares of land for the further development of the Onne Port Oil & Gas Free Zone. The material required for the reclamation works will be sourced from nearby creeks and rivers using a cutter dredger and a medium-sized hopper dredger. The project is set to commence mid-2011 and will last approximately two to three years.

Three other recently awarded projects in Nigeria are related to construction of riverbed protection works, maintenance dredging of canals and land reclamation works – all in the Niger Delta.

The Boskalis strategy is designed to benefit from the key macro-economic drivers that fuel global demand in our selected markets: global trade, increasing energy consumption, expanding population pressures and the challenges of changing climate conditions. These projects are driven by the need to expand port infrastructure to facilitate the export of oil and gas as well as to protect the shoreline from erosion.

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. is a leading global services provider operating in the dredging, maritime infrastructure and maritime services sectors. We provide creative and innovative all-round solutions to infrastructural challenges in the maritime, coastal and delta regions of the world including the construction and maintenance of ports and waterways, land reclamation, coastal defense and riverbank protection. We offer a wide variety of marine services through SMIT and we have positions in strategic partnerships in the Middle East (Archirodon) and in offshore services (Lamnalco). The company holds important home market positions in and outside of Europe. Boskalis has a versatile fleet of over 1,100 units and operates in over 65 countries across six continents. Including its share in partnerships, Boskalis has approximately 14,000 employees. Boskalis celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010.
