BREDA, the Netherlands – Dockwise has won 12 new contracts with a total value of $55 million, of which six are due to be executed by year-end.
They involve transportation of four jackup drilling rigs, one semisubmersible drilling rig, dredging equipment, offshore transfer and elevation platforms, and tugs and barges.
Transportations in 2012 will include a spar buoy from Finland to the Gulf of Mexico.
Dockwise also has entered into a Master Service Agreement with Keppel in Singapore to transport the latter’s jackup and semisubmersible rigs.
It is similar to the agreement Dockwise announced with Seadrill last year, and should standardize conditions and accelerate negotiations on single transportation assignments.
