Boskalis and Van Oord JV Wins Offshore Center Contract

The Port of Rotterdam Authority and PUMA signed the contract for the construction of the site of the Offshore Center.

PUMA (Projectorganisatie Uitbreiding Maasvlakte, Project Organisation Expansion Maasvlakte) is a joint venture of the two Dutch hydraulic engineering firms Royal Boskalis Westminster NV and Van Oord NV for the construction of the first phase of Maasvlakte 2.

The Offshore Center, to be used for activities in the areas of offshore wind power, decommissioning and the oil & gas sector, will be realized at Prinses Alexiahaven along Maasvlakte 2’s inland basin.

PUMA will officially start rainbowing on the site, with a planned surface area of 70 ha, on 1 August, the Port of Rotterdam said in its release.

The total of some 7 million m³ of sand required for this undertaking will be extracted from offshore sites and port basins. If everything goes as planned, the entire port site will be rainbowed on by late 2017.

Work on the construction of the quay walls can subsequently start in mid-2018.

The first companies are expected to set up at the Offshore Center within two years, the port said.
