Boskalis wins contract for gas pipeline offshore Denmark

Royal Boskalis Westminster has been awarded two offshore contract worth €85 million, one of which is for a 4km-long gas pipeline in Denmark.

The contract, which was awarded by Denmark’s Energinet Gas-TSO, is for the laying of a new 4km-long, 36-inch gas pipeline from Jutland to Funen in the Lillebaelt of Denmark.

The scope of the project includes the pre-trenching, pipe-pull, cofferdam construction and post-lay rock installation to protect the pipeline.

The project is unusual in that it requires a bend in the pipeline, for which an innovative guiding roller system will be applied. Boskalis will engage multiple disciplines for the pipeline, including a trailing suction hopper dredger, fallpipe vessel and backhoe dredger.

Additionally, Boskalis was awarded a contract for the scour protection for the Yunlin windfarm, offshore Taiwan.
