The heavy marine transport services contracts were awarded by a variety of different clients. Most of the projects are scheduled for execution in 2021 and 2022.
Following last year's transportation of a sizable box-shaped FPSO, Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) secured a contract to transport a similar FPSO from China to Brazil. With a weight exceeding 91k tonnes this marks another record-breaking transport for the BOKA Vanguard, scheduled to commence at the end of 2019.
Boskalis also secured a contract for the transportation of various large LNG modules from a fabrication yard in China to Russia. The contract ties up the two high-end open-stern heavy transport vessels Blue Marlin and Black Marlin commencing Q2 2021.
Last but not least, the company will be tasked with the transportation of an FPSO from the fabrication yard in China to the North Sea in 2021 and the transportation of two Floating Production Systems from Singapore to the Gulf of Mexico in the period 2021-2022. These cargoes will be transported on the White Marlin and Blue Marlin.
