Boskalis Bags Port of Rotterdam Quay Walls and Jetty Contract
Boskalis has been awarded a contract by the Port of Rotterdam Authority to build quay walls and a jetty, as well as to execute related activities for the construction of a new tank terminal in the port.
The contract, won in a consortium with Van Hattum en Blankevoort (Royal VolkerWessels) and TBI subsidiary Mobilis, is valued at more than EUR 100 million, with Boskalis’ share amounting to EUR 34 million.
HES International B.V. is building a new storage terminal for oil products in the Port of Rotterdam.
To be able to accommodate both large oil tankers and inland vessels, Boskalis and its partners will construct a 1,200-meter long quay wall for seagoing vessels, a 1,100-meter long quay wall for inland vessels, a 350-meter long jetty with four berths as well as riverbank and soil protection.
The project will begin in early 2018 and is expected to be completed at the end of 2019.
