In addition to our traditional dredging activities we offer a broad range of maritime services for the offshore energy sector. In addition to heavy transport and lifting and installation activities we provide towage services as well as emergency response and salvage related services.


As a partner we are able to realize complex infrastructural works for our clients within  the chain of design, project management and execution, on time and within budget, even at vulnerable or remote locations around the world. We strive for sustainable design and realization of our solutions.


Demand for our services is driven by growing energy consumption, growth in global trade, growth in world population and climate change. Boskalis operates worldwide but concentrates on seven geographic regions which have the highest growth expectations for the energy and ports markets. This spread gives us both a solid foundation and the flexibility to be able to secure a wide range of projects, as well as providing good prospects for balanced and sustained growth. Our main clients are oil, gas and power companies, port operators, governments, shipping companies, international project developers, insurance companies and mining companies.


Boskalis has 11,000 employees, including our share in associate companies. The safety of our own employees and those of our subcontractors is paramount. Boskalis operates a progressive global safety program which is held in high regard in the industry and by our clients. We operate on behalf of our clients in over 75 countries across six continents. Our versatile fleet consists of 1,000 vessels and equipment. Our head office is based in the Dutch city of Papendrecht. Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. shares have been listed on Euronext Amsterdam since 1971 and are again included in the AEX index from March 2014.
