Marine Equipment

The right tool for the right job

BESIX owns a modern and fit for purpose marine construction equipment fleet in order to best suit the requirements of its coastal marine projects.

The overall fleet is now made out of two 1,100-ton capacity self-elevating platforms fitted with 250-ton cranes, two backhoe dredgers, 18 Nos. tugs, multicats and workboats, as well as more than 20 crane and transport barges.

The fleet is based in and deployed from the marine base in Ajman, UAE, that offers all the required facilities, including a slipway, to properly maintain, repair, prepare and mobilize the vessels.

Thanks to its know-how, its in-house Engineering department and the variety of its fleet, BESIX is able to offer its clients tailor-made solutions for the construction of coastal marine facilities such as (un)loading jetties, breakwaters, quay walls or subsea pipelines.

BESIX has completed several marine projects in Poland (Deepwater Container Terminal in Gda sk), the UAE (VLCC1 project in Fujairah and Dubai Canal), Qatar (Salwa Resort in Doha), the Netherlands (Keersluis in Limmel) and Belgium (Lock of Lanaye and the Fifth Harbor Dock in Antwerp), and is now active in two major LNG facilities in Egypt and Bahrain.

During the overall project process, from the tender to the delivery stage, constructability is the main driving factor to ensure the client a safe, cost-effective, environment-friendly and timely project solution.

BESIX has always considered the coastal marine projects as one of its core businesses and intends to continue to be one of the key players on this very demanding market.
