BOA provides turn-key solution to MacGregor


BOA have successfully completed the installation of 3 newbuilt mega linkspans for MacGregor in Calais, France. The Linkspans were over 2000 tones, 35m wide and 100m long.

During 3 continuous operations, BOA provided a turn-key solution including assembly of the linkspans onboard the semi-submersible barge BOA Barge 35, handling all port operations including assisting tugs, towing master and operators both in Rotterdam and Calais, transportation from Rotterdam to Calais, float-off operation and installation at the new port facilities in Calais.

Many thanks to MacGregor for awarding this complex and challenging contract to BOA based on our proposed methodology and to our all our sub-contractors making this project a success.


BOA are pleased to share the appreciation received from MacGregor:

“BOA delivered a turn key solution for MacGregor´s Port of Calais 2015 – project. BOA was the key subcontractor for the installation part in Calais and performed with excellent results.

All the way from the engineering, to barge setup until final installation and float off operations in Calais, it was an impressive achievement. For future collaboration MacGregor will turn to BOA again.”
