VSMC’s name change to VBMS part of new corporate identity

VSMC (Visser & Smit Marine Contracting) is now VBMS. This name change is a result of the strategic joint venture between VolkerWessels and Boskalis, which was formalised in 2013.

VBMS is inspired by the initialisation of VolkerWessels Boskalis Marine Solutions. Besides introducing a new name, VBMS is also rolling out a new logo and corporate identity.

Strong growth

VolkerWessels launched the subsea power cable installation company in 2007, shortly after which it enjoyed a marked increase in productivity as a result of being contracted for major projects such as London Array, Walney and Ormonde. In 2013, Boskalis acquired a 50% stake in the company. VBMS has now become the market leader in total solutions for subsea power cable installation. VBMS also provides Balance of Plant maintenance for the renewables market, umbilical/flowline installation for the oil & gas market and installation solutions for interconnectors.

‘We connect’

VBMS CEO Arno van Poppel: “As VBMS, we will continue to deliver multidisciplinary grid-to-grid services and world-class marine solutions to help our clients reach their business goals. As always, we deliver on our commitments to the highest safety standards possible. Therefore, our company slogan reflects the way we do business. ‘We connect’ with our clients, our parent and sister companies, on and offshore, engineering and operations, etc.”
