VBMS, Dockwise, and Fairmount to continue operating as Boskalis
Dutch offshore giant Boskalis has presented its integrated service portfolio for the offshore energy market under one single brand name.
Boskalis said on Monday that VBMS, Dockwise, and Fairmount would continue to offer their services under the brand name Boskalis.
The company is a specialist within its respective marine contracting disciplines, with the ability to combine its offering.
“Supported by its financial strength, experience, and expertise, Boskalis aims to strengthen its leadership positions in marine transport & services and seabed intervention and to expand its position in Marine Installation, Subsea, and Marine Survey. The latter supported by the recent acquisition of Gardline,” the company said.
As a response to the growing market demand for inspection, repair, and maintenance of subsea offshore installation, pipelines, and cables, Boskalis recently added two large diving support vessels (DSVs) and crane vessel Bokalift 1 to its fleet, to be employed both for oil and gas and for offshore windfarm installation projects.
Boskalis also said on Monday in a separate statement that the renaming and subsequent rebranding of the Boka Vanguard, a heavy lift vessel, marked the start of the process to present the companies under a single brand name.
Boskalis added that this first important step symbolized the ambition to bring together the various business units.
