The opening was attended by representatives from several companies active in the offshore wind industry, including Watterson Terminals, Crowley and RI Building Trades, with whom Boscalis will work closely in the coming years. The Papendrecht company has its registered office in Sliedrecht, where it was founded. Many of the residents of Sliedrecht work at Boskalis.
Boscalis has expanded its operations in the US in recent years to serve the renewable energy market. It initially involved several offshore exploration campaigns for the first phase of offshore wind development. Most recently, Boscalis has won several contracts for the transportation and installation of foundations, export cables and corrosion protection for developing offshore wind farms in the Northeast United States. This includes transportation, installation of foundations, substations and erosion protection for Ørsted-Eversource as part of the development of the South Fork, Revolution and Sunrise wind farms on the US East Coast.
A well-known market
Boscalis has been active in the United States since the early 1980s, initially through Stuyvesant Dredging Company and later through Dogwise USA and Danjon Schmidt. Specializing in maritime contracting, Boskalis has been involved in several marine projects, remediation of contaminated soil from several river beds and various reclamation activities. In order to facilitate the energy transition to renewable sources, Boscalis has expanded its activities in the renewable energy market in recent years, contributing to the development of more than 100 offshore wind farms worldwide.
