Boskalis Chosen for Chatham Rise Project Design

Chatham Rock Phosphate Ltd (CRP), New Zealand, has selected Royal Boskalis Westminster to undertake the detailed design of their rock phosphate nodule project at the Chatham Rise, a relatively shallow area no more than 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) deep, on the ocean floor east of New Zealand.

Other dredging companies considered were IHC Merwede/D.E.M.E. and Jan de Nul, who carried out independent extraction, upgrading and commercial delivery studies.

“After CRP received these studies several months ago, they were reviewed by a panel of four independent marine dredging experts, who interacted with each study group to select the superior proposal,” said CRP director Chris Castle.
