Dredging and marine services group Boskalis has won a $65m logistical management transport order, the company said on Friday.

The contract is to transport a large number of modules from a fabrication yard in Asia to a plant being developed in North America. It will tie up two high-end, open-stern heavy transport vessels for approximately 475 vessel days in late 2019.

In addition, the Papendrecht-based company has had a letter of intent from Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering for the transport and float-over installation of a topside for the Bokor Central Processing Platform Phase 3 redevelopment project in Malaysia.

The topside will be constructed by its yard in Malaysia and will be skidded onto an open-stern heavy transport vessel. For the purpose of this project, an existing vessel will be modified and become dynamic positioning compliant, allowing it to work in close proximity to offshore structures.

The project is due to be carried out in 2020.
