Dockwise to carry Concordia

ADVERTISEMENT

Dockwise, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis), has been awarded the contract to load and transport the cruise ship Costa Concordia wreck from the island of Giglio off Italy.



The cruise ship will be loaded in whole onboard the Dockwise Vanguard, the world’s largest semi-submersible ship, and transported to an as-yet unnamed location where it can be scrapped.



As part of the contract, certain modifications will be made to the Dockwise Vanguard to accommodate the loading of the Concordia in her current state, according to a company press release. The operation is planned to take place around mid-2014. The removal is expected to cost about $30 million.



Boskalis recently sold Dockwise’s yacht division and now focuses exclusively in the commercial marine industry.
