World’s Largest Semi-Submersible Heavy Lift Vessel To Set A New Record

Boskalis is about to set a new record and create another new horizon. The BOKA Vanguard, the world’s largest semi-submersible heavy lift vessel of Boskalis, is currently getting ready to load a 90,000 ton Floating Production, Storage and Offloading platform. This is equivalent to the weight of approximately 300 Boeing 747s making this the heaviest cargo ever to be transported by a semi-submersible heavy lift vessel.

Until recently, the BOKA Vanguard was known as the Dockwise Vanguard. The renaming and subsequent rebranding of the vessel marks the start of the process to present the company’s integrated service portfolio for the Offshore Energy sector under a single brand name: Boskalis. This first important step symbolizes the ambition to bring together the various business units, each with their unique background, offering our clients a truly unparalleled combination of people, vessels and activities able to break new grounds and create new horizons.

From 30 April to 3 May 2018, Boskalis will be exhibiting at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston. During OTC, Boskalis will present its unique range of specialist activities for the Offshore Energy industry.
