Boskalis awarded contract with Port of Rotterdam

Royal Boskalis Westminster, in a consortium with Van Hattum en Blankevoort (Royal VolkerWessels) and TBI subsidiary Mobilis, have 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 of Rotterdam. The contract is valued at more than €100 million, with Boskalis’ share amounting to €34 million. The project will commence in early 2018 and is expected to be completed at the end of 2019.

HES International 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 m long quay wall for seagoing vessels, a 1,100 m long quay wall for inland vessels, a 350 m long jetty with four berths as well as riverbank and soil protection. Boskalis said the project is driven by the growth in global trade and energy consumption.
