Heavy Marine Transport

Boskalis Offshore Heavy Marine Transport is a leading player in the heavy marine transportation sector. With our extensive fleet of semi-submersibles, we ensure the safe, reliable, and on-time delivery of some of the world’s largest, heaviest, and most valuable on- and offshore assets for the oil & gas and renewables markets. We also offer transport solutions tailored to the needs of our clients in other industries.

For years, Boskalis has been the world leader in dry heavy marine transport for the oil & gas market. In the renewables market, the increased size of foundations is driving the need for more, and larger, transport solutions. Our fleet of heavy transport vessels is therefore increasingly deployed on offshore wind projects.
