Safe ocean transport and on-time delivery is of the essence when it comes to moving offshore drilling rigs from one location to another around the world. Boskalis delivers a full range of transport and maritime services using in-house transport engineering and project management capabilities, and its fleet of Boskalis, Dockwise and Fairmount vessels.

Offshore drilling rigs

We can relocate your offshore drilling rig to anywhere in the world thanks to the sheer size and versatility of our fleet of Dockwise semi-submersible, heavy marine transport vessels and Fairmount oceangoing tugs. Our Boskalis anchor handling tugs (AHTs) can provide solutions for short distance towage and mooring and hook-up services for semi-submersible drilling rigs.

Regardless of the size and features of your rig, we offer the most flexible and effective transport solution in the industry.

Ensuring safe and reliable offshore operations

The safe and reliable operation of your offshore drilling facility is essential. We provide subsea survey services and underwater inspection in lieu of dry-docking (UWILD) with our diving and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). We also provide a unique dry-docking solution with our semi-submersible heavy lift vessels. Our sheerlegs can assist with rig modifications.
