Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. is a global maritime services company operating in the dredging, offshore energy and inland infrastructure sectors and through Smit they are also active in the towage and salvage sectors.
They operate in over 75 countries and across six continents
Boskalis commenced operation in 1910 Sliedrecht when a group of families set up a new dredging company operating three bucket dredgers, a suction dredger, a jacob’s ladder, two bottom dischargers, two house boats and ten barges.
After the First World War they were involved in the construction of dykes, land reclamation and other work that protected the Dutch coastline. During the 1930's the company grew at home and overseas and in 1931 the company won a contract for the dredging of Bromborough Docks. In 1933 they established the Westminster Dredging Company in London which led to major land reclamation projects in West Africa.
During the 1950's Boskalis and Westminster Dredging Company collaborated on projects all over the world, including Australia, Canada and the Middle East. Following the 1953 flood disaster in the Netherlands they were involved in the construction of the storm surge barrier in the Eastern Scheldt as well as developing coastal defense techniques.
In 1953 Boskalis took the trailer suction hopper dredger James 47 into service, making it at the time the first in Europe to introduce this type of dredger. Boskalis became a public company in the early 1970's and received the designation ‘Royal’ in 1978.
During this period they were also involved in the construction of artificial islands in the Arctic to accommodate oil industry equipment as conventional oil platforms in the sea were unable to withstand the enormous forces of the polar ice.
From the 1980's the company had acquired quite a number of other companies both in Europe and overseas.
At the beginning of 2010 Boskalis merged with Dutch maritime services provider SMIT Internationale.
