Abbe's final Traineeship assignment is in Qatar, after a year on projects in Mexico, Nigeria and Abu Dhabi. 'I learned quickly about our inter-office accounting methods and systems and haven’t seen much of the Netherlands the past year!' He also had time for his hobbies: outdoor sports and travel.

Creating new horizons! Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. is a leading global dredging and offshore contractor and maritime services provider. We offer a unique combination of experts, vessels and activities. With our origins in the Netherlands, we have been operating for over 100 years. Today we create new horizons for our stakeholders in the ports, offshore energy, maritime and inland infrastructure markets.


Based on three strategic pillars - Focus, Sustainable Growth and Human Excellence - the CBP for 2020-2022 addresses current and anticipated developments in our global business environment.

In monitoring and developing our corporate strategy we keep a clear eye on the long-term megatrends that underpin the Boskalis business model, being population growth, growing world trade, increasing energy demand, climate change and the energy transition.

A positive development is expected in these macro-trends. World trade, and demand for infrastructure, raw materials and energy in particular, is driven by the structural growth and increasing prosperity of the world's population, which is increasingly living in coastal areas.

To address climate change adequately, huge investments in adaptive measures are needed. The increasing demand for maritime infrastructure is an important driver for the sustainable growth of the activities and it opens up opportunities to expand the company further.


Boskalis has three divisions, each with its own operational support functions, such as tendering, engineering, fleet management and crewing.

-Dredging & Inland Infra
-Offshore Energy
-Towage & Salvage

Boskalis operates in over 90 countries across six continents and has an extensive network of branches around the world. Our head office is located in Papendrecht, the Netherlands, where our campus houses all three divisions.

The Board of Management consists of four members and is chaired by Peter Berdowski. They are responsible for establishing the company’s objectives, implementing its business policies and for the resulting performance. The Board of Management is accountable to the Supervisory Board and the General Meeting of Shareholders. In performing its tasks, the Board of Management is guided by the interests of the company and its activities, the markets the company is operating in, and takes into account any relevant interests of parties involved with the company.


Boskalis operates in the ports, offshore energy and infrastructure markets. These markets anticipate structural growth over the longer term as a result of several key global trends - the growth in world population, global trade and the resulting increase in demand for raw materials and energy, including sustainable solutions to meet the challenges of climate change.
