No matter what logistical problem or challenge, wecan provide a solution with our state of the art equipment and available experience and knowledge of over 3,000 employees!Wagenborg Projects & Logistics (WPL) started back in 1998 as a service provider for project freights within Wagenborg Shipping. Early2012, we decided to reposition WPL as a separate division within Royal Wagenborg. With this move we ensure that our customers benefitmost of our logistic solutions. The primary task of WPL is to combine all available knowledge and logistic assets from all Wagenborg divisionsfor providing door-to-door solutions for our customers.This philosophy is also the strength of Royal Wagenborg. Thanks to the various markets and countries we are active in, we have a lot ofknowledge and experience to offer for our customers.

The primary task is to provide door-to-door solutionsfor project freights, where often one or more divisions of Royal - Jacking-, skidding- and lifting gantry systemsWagenborg are involved. Unlike all the other Wagenborg Divisions 5
  6. 6. that provide logistic solutions, WPL does not possess assets; it acts on behalf of more divisions and makes use of Wagenborg resources or those of reliable partners. In addition, worldwide transport of project cargo can be realized by making quick and efficient links between Wagenborg’s widespread own resources and external partners, making the project freight forwarding activities of WPL efficient, flexible, and reliable. Understanding our clients is important, therefore we focus on the following industries within the project freight forwarding services: oil & gas, energy, technology and construction & engineering. Wagenborg has many years of experience in these industries and therefore is able to provide our clients with the most suitable solution. Supply Chain Management Besides the project related cargo, the new service of WPL is offering total supply chain management (SCM) solutions. With SCM we mean managing the goods of the total supply chain from assembly to the end destination, since the transport of goods does not just stop in each port or warehouse. Therefore WPL integrates the services on both land and water to offer our clients a full package of logistic services with Wagenborg’s own resources and skilled and experienced people or via a reliable partner of Wagenborg. The central idea behind SCM is to offer existing and potential clients more transport solutions than solely the current activities of Wagenborg perform. This will result in a more efficient flow of transporting goods. With the growing focus on forwarding activities, WPL can design the perfect mix between our own assets and that of our partners, making the transport the most cost efficient and reliable for our customers. The service can best be described by the figure below. WPL combines the intermodal solutions (road & rail transport), together with sea freight, warehousing, stevedoring and customs and insurance. Thereby focusing on our selected industries: Automotive, Retail, Forest Products, Industrial Products and Hygiene Products. Supply Chain Management WPL With the new strategy and positioning of Wagenborg Projects & Logistics we not only combine the strength of the Wagenborg divisions but also our knowledge for every transport. In other words: for every project, freight or transport you only need one point of contact: Wagenborg Projects and Logistics.6

Here below is a brief review of The IMSV are developed by Wagenborg in close co-operationthe latest developments in this area. with Royal Niestern Sander and the Finnish companies Aker Arctic and Wärtsilä. The most important elements in this design are the icebreaking capacities, the propulsion installation, the sailing in gas clouds (H2S) and the cargo carrying capability at a limited draft. The ‘Sanaborg and ‘Serkeborg’ will be delivered in July and August 2012. 7
  8. 8. 23,000 tons ‘Reggeborg’ and ‘Reestborg’ for Wagenborg Shipping The contract for the construction of a series of ice reinforced and nozzle equipped 23,000 DWT dry cargo ships was signed in December 2010. These are going to be the biggest ships ever built for Wagenborg. The first two ships of this series will be named ‘Reestborg’ and ‘Reggeborg’ and they will be delivered at the beginning of 2013 and 2014. Expansion transport fleet Wagenborg Nedlift Wagenborg Nedlift has expanded its vehicle park with two pcs. 7-axle semi- low loaders made by Nooteboom, fitted with the patented Nooteboom MCO- PX system. These gamma low loaders are characterised by their versatility in combination with an high load capacity. Wagenborg Nedlift possesses two identical semi-low loaders from this series. Together with Nooteboom, Wagenborg Nedlift developed a concept that helps to improve the safety, stability and ergonomics. The trailers are equipped with all kinds of novelties in this field: a load floor with many possibilities, (heavy) retaining stanchions and (heavy) recessed fastening eyelets. ‘Big boy’ for Wagenborg Nedlift Wagenborg Nedlift has recently added a new 500 ton mobile crane (type Demag AC500/2) to its fleet. This new, modern equipped machine satisfies the increasing demand from the market for the deployment of equipment with a bigger hoisting capacity. The crane is equipped with a so-called Y-guy. This can be used to raise the mast both sideways and backwards which facilitates a higher hoisting capacity. The crane was recently taken into service in a celebratory manner at Museum Railway STAR in Stadskanaal (NL) where an historic steam engine was turned around using the new crane. The hoisting operation was carried out under the watchful eyes of the management and customers of Wagenborg Nedlift and Museum Railway STAR. ‘Rottum’ and ‘Monnik’ given a facelift The ferry boats ‘Rottum’ and ‘Monnik’, which are used by Wagenborg Passenger Services for the ferry services from Lauwersoog to Schiermonnikoog, have been given a facelift. Due to the age of the ships (about 25 years old), two options were researched: replacement or renovation. Research revealed the mechanical condition of both ferry boats was still good. “Nevertheless, renovation was necessary in order to be able to respond better to current demands”, according to WPD managing director Ger van Langen. In a technical sense, the ships are completely renovated. The double hull is replaced with another type of construction and the engine room has been fitted with new, more efficient engines. And last but not least, a completely new navigation bridge was installed. Another major change concerns the layout of the ships. A renewal of the salons and buffet, the addition of a shop, relocation of toilets, a new air conditioning system and a different layout of the car deck makes the ferryboats a new experience for the passengers.8

  10. 10. OL3Project OL 3 is being built at the western end of the Olkiluoto island, Finland, next to the OL1 and OL2 units. OL3 will be equipped with an EPR type reactor (European Pressurized water Reactor), and the net electrical output of the unit will be approximately 1,600 MW. Commercial Vent operation is expected to start in 2014.

Right from the start, we were involved in developing a logistics process - Supply of sufficient certified trucks and trailers that was feasible and efficient, in close co-operation with all parties - Quality control and administration on transported pipeline pieces. involved.” “A construction period of 1.5 years seems quite long, but - Execution of route surveys and arranging road transport permits taking into account that 26,908 pipes have to be delivered in - Project management and engineering. approximately 340 working days with one pipe per truckload, means that 80 loads need to be transported each day. Every hour 10 Cross-Border Teamwork trucks had to be loaded and offloaded! Combined with the fact that Although the countries are neighbours, there are quite some cultural distances from loading location [railway stations along the route] to differences between the German and Dutch peoples. Working on such the construction sites varied from 10 to 60 kilometers, this made the a project together, this can be a recipe for miscommunication. However, project a true challenge for a logistics service provider. Our team of Schuiling could turn it into an advantage. “German authorities were young eager logistics professionals and very experienced operations more than willing to assist with required permits and arrangements to managers managed to deal with all those challenges,” Schuiling keep the project going” he says. “They were happily surprised by our explains. approach and practical way of communication and solving problems.” “Personally, I had the time of my life with these projects,” Schuiling Full Logistics Chain Control concludes. “I really enjoyed working with such a variety of people from In order to be able to control the full logistics chain, Wagenborg our own company, our customers, suppliers involved and local people.

These cranes are used to handle hatch covers and tween decks. Working with these hatch cover cranes requires special attention of crew and officers. In order to safely operate the hatch cover crane, strict safety procedures are applicable. Wagenborg has made a safety procedure instruction DVD to instruct its own ship crews, vessels agencies and training & education centres.

  26. 26. The In the otherwise so quiet and eefde lock picturesque village of Eefde, there’s been lots of hustle and bustle going on during the winter of 2012. The lock in the Twente Canal near the village even became breaking news for a while. Due to an, as yet, unknown cause, a lock gate weighing 90 tons fell down on 3 January, 2012, thereby blocking the only access from the IJssel to the Twente Canal. More than 40 inland waterway ships were no longer able to leave the Twente Canal. A major problem therefore for the inland waterway traffic and the masters in the Twente region, who could no longer transport their freight.26
  27. 27. The situation demanded a rapid solution. In co-operation withthe Ministry of Water Management and Jansen Venneboer,main contractor for the repair works, Wagenborg Nedliftdeveloped a method to temporarily operate the lock.he temporary lifting construction consisted of two parts: a 400tons crawler crane with superlift attachment and a securingdevice. As the repairing works in the lock building needed togo on full-time the securing device could not be assembled inthe building itself. Wagenborg Nedlift designed a so calledgantry around the building and assembled the securing deviceon top of it. Once the gate had been lifted it was secured bymeans of 2 hydraulic securing pins. If anything unforeseenwould happen with the crane, the gate would always besecured. Ships could now safely pass the gate.Several components had to fabricated for the job, they allneeded to be tested and certified. However the design,engineering and assembly of the crane and gantry took 3weeks only. More than 50 heavy transport trucks were neededto deliver the equipment required. In the meantime, there wasa severe frost and the Twente Canal also froze over. Just whenthe solution was so close, the stranded ships were threatenedto become frozen in… The Ministry of Water Managementwas soon able to mobilise an ice breaker and WagenborgTowage assisted with a second one. As a result, the shippingroute in the Twente Canal soon became navigable again.By the end of March, the original lock construction wasrepaired so normal operation could start again. The peaceand quietness returned to the picturesque Eefde… 27

For the bagging, Reining developed a new machine from scratch, together with the customer and a machine builder. The bagging machine is very accurate and it fills 20 KG bags with fiber glass from big bags. The allowed deviation is very small and should not exceed 0,2%. From the end of 2011 Reining is managing the logistics operation of Flint Ink. Flint is a producer of a wide array of inks that are used in the printing business.

  31. 31. On Thursday 15 March,Wagenborg Passenger Serviceslaunched the new companyuniform and a new casual clothingbrand with a marine heritage:‘1898’. Both collections have beendesigned by Monique Collignon.The launching of the two collectionstook place at a unique location: theferry boat ‘Oerd’ was transformedinto a floating catwalk especiallyfor this occasion. The unique co-operation between Wagenborg Passenger Services and Monique Collignon came about as a result of the ambition to underline the provision of service to the passengers both on board and in the terminals and to give the employees a unique company outfit. Wagenborg Passenger Services places a lot of emphasis on synergy of tourism, culture, nature and commercial services with initiatives such as the Wagenborg Plaza in Holwerd and Lauwersoog, a departure terminal with shops and exhibition area where the passengers can already start their holidays with high quality services and experience. Monique Collignon has already designed haute couture for more than 14 years now and in December 2011 she designed the MC Couture Light collection: a unique and trendy initiative based on the vision of making design available for all women. ‘1898’ was a very special assignment for Monique because of her long-standing love of the Wadden islands. The tough and rugged character of the islands together with the maritime influences of the shipping company formed the inspiration for both the company uniform and also the ‘1898’ label. 31
