Peter Berdowski, CEO Boskalis: "The Dockwise Vanguard has been well received in the market. Our decision to start this study is a reflection of this and we see many more exciting opportunities in the FPSO and FLNG markets."The study addresses both the market opportunities and the technical requirements for the new vessel. Boskalis will engage with clients to understand how this vessel can accommodate the expected growth in the FPSO and FLNG markets in addition to the ocean-going transport of outsized heavy marine structures. Compared to the Dockwise Vanguard, the new vessel will be larger in terms of length, breadth and carrying capacity but will also have a bowless design and asymmetric accommodation. The addition of another V-class vessel to the current fleet of semi-submersible HTV's allows Boskalis to further expand its leading market position in the offshore energy industry.
