The total contract value is approximately EUR155 million in which Boskalis has a 50% share. Work is set to commence in 2010 and capital dredging is set to be completed by mid 2011. 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.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor

 

Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
