Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. has announced that it been awarded three dredging-related contracts on the African subcontinent. The contracts have a combined value of approximately €75 million.
One of these contracts was awarded by Angola LNG Ltd. It covers dredging activities related to maintaining the access channel and turning basins of the Soyo LNG port. The project will be executed in joint venture and involves the removal of approximately 11 million m3 of sand and silt by medium-sized trailing suction hopper dredgers. Work is set to commence in 3Q15 and will be completed by the end of 2017.
Boskalis also executed the initial capital dredging and reclamation works for this LNG port on behalf of Angola LNG from early 2007 until mid-2009.
