Royal Boskalis Westminster (The Netherlands) has been awarded a contract for capital and maintenance dredging in the port of Bahía Blanca, Argentina. The contract value is approximately EUR90 million and was acquired together with the Jan de Nul Group, Belgium. Boskalis' share of the total contract is approximately EUR55 million.
 

The project scope includes capital dredging and a five-year maintenance contract to maintain the depth. The capital dredging work will be performed in 2012, and 5.5 million cubic metres of firm soil will be removed with a large seagoing cutter suction dredger. This firm soil consists mainly of shale. The maintenance contract requires the annual removal of approximately 3.8 million cubic metres of silt over a period of five years and will be carried out with a trailing suction.
