Every year Boskalis publishes its magazine (www.boskalis.com/magazine) in which we offer fresh perspectives from external experts and present projects and approaches that push back operational and technological boundaries. Even in these turbulent times, we want to keep our clients, business partners and other stakeholders informed about interesting new developments and the backgrounds of our activities. This way we also underline the dedication and hard work of all the Boskalis employees around the world of whom many are faced with COVID-19 restrictions.
In this new edition, Ad van Wijk, Professor of Future Energy Systems at Delft University of Technology, unfolds his vision of the major role that hydrogen can play in a sustainable global energy supply and Dr. Aimée Slangen, sea level change expert at the Netherlands Institute for Marine Research (NIOZ) and one of the lead authors of the forthcoming Assessment Report 6 of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, discusses the main causes and consequences of sea level rise.
We highly recommend the inspirational articles and beautiful videos on groundbreaking projects, such as the dry docking of the cruise ship Carnival Vista, the construction of the port complex in Duqm and the installation of the Borssele export cables.
Let’s create new horizons together!
Please be aware that most articles were written before the COVID-19 outbreak, so some of the content may have been placed in a different light.
