Other contract awards include the transport of four flattop barges, an intake caisson, as well as a total of three jack-up rigs to various locations.

André Goedée, CEO: "Offshore exploration, development and production continue to show increasing levels of activity. The slowly Increasing level of utilisation of the larger jack ups yields more work for the larger vessels. Port and Marine infrastructure activity levels still do not show the level of increase as expected, but nevertheless continue to yield a steady flow of interesting commitments that help to optimise the fleet schedule as much as possible."
