Under the contract, Dockwise will use its six Dockwise Heavy Marine Transport Vessels, floating super pallets and two new SMIT Giant barges and anchor handling tugs to transport over 100 modules from China and Malaysia to the site at Ashburton North, 12 kilometers west of Onslow in western Australia.
Additionally, Dockwise will provide on-deck stowage for modules, poggy back capacity for barges/FSPs, carrying modules and an SMIT Giant barge-AHT combination will be used as a towage solution.
Dockwise is based in the Netherlands.
