November 15 (Renewables Now) - Dutch dredging and offshore contractor Royal Boskalis Westminster NV (AMS:BOKA) announced on Monday that it has secured a EUR-450-million (USD 515.2m) contract to provide transport and installation services for an offshore wind farm development, which it did not name.

Boskalis will be in charge of the transportation and installation of the monopile foundations and substations for the project, for which engineering and pre-construction work has already begun.

The Dutch offshore contractor's Bokalift 1 and Bokalift 2 crane vessels and heavy transport fleet are well suited to large-scale offshore wind projects, the company said, adding that the contract ties up one year of crane vessel use days in addition to the equivalent of two years of heavy transport vessels.

Construction of the project is scheduled to begin in 2023.
