Winnaar Innovation Challenge N470 geeft energie!

Cannassette is de eerste winnaar van de N470 Innovation Challenge die de provincie Zuid-Holland samen met aannemer Boskalis organiseert. Deze jaarlijkse competitie is onderdeel van de duurzame vernieuwing van de provinciale weg N470 tussen Delft en Zoetermeer. Volgens de jury is het plasticvrije geluidsscherm van hennephoutvezel een praktische innovatie die zo langs de N470 en andere wegen kan worden neergezet. Snelgroeiende plant verwerkt tot modulair geluidscherm Cannassette is de Nederlandse fabrikant van geluidschermen op basis van hennephoutvezel. De snelgroeiende industriële hennepplant gebruikt weinig water en geen bestrijdingsmiddelen. Door de vezels van de plant te mengen met kalkbinder en water ontstaat de natuurlijke en CO2-negatieve vulling voor het geluidscherm. Deze vulling wordt verwerkt in cassettes van duurzaam Magnelis metaal die gekoppeld worden tot een geluidsscherm van de gewenste afmetingen. Houten reflectorpaaltjes en aangeklede wegbarrier De tweede plaats ging naar Van Swaay en Accsys die reflectorpaaltjes en ander wegmeubilair uit Accoyahout hebben ontwikkeld. Accoya is snelgroeiend hout dat op natuurlijke en duurzame wijze veredeld is, zodat het een extreem lange levensduur krijgt. DeltaBloc ontving de derde prijs voor hun innovatie om veelgebruikte betonnen wegbarriers van een geluidsabsorberend ‘jasje’ te voorzien. Doordat deze wegbarriers veel dichter op het verkeer staan dan een normaal geluidsscherm, vermindert een beklede barrier evenveel geluidshinder als een metershoog scherm. N470 als pilot voor andere wegen Vanuit het Klimaatakkoord heeft Zuid-Holland de ambitie om stapsgewijs alle wegen en vaarwegen in de provincie te verduurzamen. De N211 tussen Westland en Den Haag werd in 2018 al onder handen genomen en CO2 –negatief opgeleverd. Samen met de N470 vormt de weg een vliegwiel voor verduurzaming. In deze projecten legt Zuid-Holland de lat net iets hoger dan gangbaar in de markt waardoor aannemers en leveranciers uitgedaagd zijn te innoveren, samen te werken en hun creativiteit te gebruiken om de opdracht te mogen uitvoeren. Aannemer Boskalis bespaart met haar plan voor de N470 anderhalf keer zoveel CO2 als wordt uitgestoten bij de werkzaamheden en het beheer van de weg. Bovenop toegepaste innovaties als rolweerstandverlagend asfalt en een energieopwekkend geluidsscherm wordt daar via de Innovation Challenge ieder jaar nog een innovatie aan toegevoegd die toepassing in de weg krijgt.

Incident on board of FPSO in transit on Vanguard

Papendrecht, 9 January 2020 ‎Earlier this week, an incident occurred on board of the FPSO which is currently being transported by the Vanguard from China to Brazil. During the journey a contractor, designated by the yard, is conducting preservation works on board of the FPSO. These works are part of the pre-delivery activities by the yard before the FPSO is delivered to the operator in Brazil later this month. Six persons employed by the designated contractor, all with the Brazilian nationality, illegally consumed a cleaning liquid found on board of the FPSO. This liquid is a substance customarily used for degreasing purposes, presumably containing a mixture of ethanol and the severely toxic methanol. The affected persons reported this to our crew approximately 36 hours after consumption at which point serious signs of illness were becoming apparent. Swift and immediate action was taken by our crew. The Vanguard changed course towards the coast of South Africa and a medical evacuation by helicopter was organized. Regrettably one of the affected individuals passed away before the medical assistance was on site. The remaining five persons were successfully evacuated, hospitalized in Durban, South Africa and are successfully recovering from the intoxication. Boskalis expresses its deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of the deceased person. Boskalis would like to stress that it has a strict zero tolerance policy with regard to alcohol on its offshore vessels. The FPSO and Vanguard have recently resumed their journey to Brazil.

Boskalis awarded sizable FSRU contract in El Salvador

Papendrecht, 23 December 2019 Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) has been awarded a sizable (1) contract to connect an offshore Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) to an onshore power plant in El Salvador. The contract was awarded by Energia del Pacifico (EDP), a 378-MW liquefied natural gas (LNG)-to-power infrastructure project at the Port of Acajutla, El Salvador. The project will commence early 2020 and is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2021. ‎ The project entails the construction of a two-kilometer-long gas pipeline connection from the onshore power plant to an offshore FSRU including the mooring and hook-up. This will include the construction of a micro tunnel from the power plant into the sea followed by the dredging of an offshore pipeline trench. With the aid of a construction support vessel (CSV) Boskalis will pull the 24 inch pipeline through the micro tunnel and trench. At the offshore location, a riser will be installed to connect the FSRU to the pipeline, in addition to an anchor spread with 11 anchors to permanently moor the FSRU in position. The final phase of the project involves the physical mooring of the FSRU and the FSRU hook-up. For these activities Boskalis will deploy a CSV, a medium-sized trailer suction hopper dredger and a backhoe dredger. With the development of this thermal powerplant, EDP will contribute to the diversification of the energy mix of El Salvador with an improved performance and reduced environmental impact. The lead project partner is Invenergy, a US-based leading global developer and operator of sustainable energy solutions, as well as several local investors. (1) For Boskalis, “sizable” refers to a contract with a value of EUR 50 – EUR 150 million. https://boskalis.com/ir/ir-policy.html FOR FURTHER INFORMATION Investor relations: Martijn L.D.
