Wagenborg has acquired two major contracts for the prestigious expansion project of the Suez Canal. The first contract was closed with a consortium consisting of the Dutch companies Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V., Van Oord, NMDC (Abu Dhabi) and Jan de Nul (Belgium) and involves four accommodation units. The second contract was closed with DEME and involves another accommodation unit and one of our icebreaking multipurpose support vessels “Sanaborg”, which was built at our own Royal Niestern Sander shipyard.
For over a century Royal Wagenborg has been a logistic partner for many major wood and paper producers worldwide. Once only known in the Baltic, Wagenborg has since then earned a worldwide reputation in this market. For example, recently m.v. Avonborg made her 100th voyage from Canada to the Caribbean for Resolute Forest Products. Despite this impressive number, this milestone is just a tip of the iceberg when it comes to the relationship between Resolute and Wagenborg. Hans Kroon, Marco Renzelli and Don Walton look back.
