Included in the contract is an optional maintenance contract running from early 2012 until early 2014.


Soyo LNG Port, AngolaThe capital dredging work scope includes the deepening and widening of the 4.5km access channel and port basins. The capital dredging involves the removal of approximately 11 million cubic metres of sand and clay and the project will be executed with medium-sized hoppers.

Besides dredging, Boskalis will also conduct a wide array of marine services ranging from installing and management of navigation aids through to hydrographic and land surveying activities.

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files

QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
