Introduction by Boskalis CEO Peter Berdowski

Peter Berdowski — CEO

Ongoing innovation is crucial to the success of Boskalis. In this second edition of ‘Creating New HORIZONS’ we look at the challenges and show how our people take a pioneering approach to create innovative solutions.

Innovation is also essential to DONG Energy, the company that is widely recognized as the pioneer of wind energy. In an exclusive interview, Samuel Leupold — DONG Energy’s Executive Vice President Wind Power — explains the difference between being a leader rather than a follower.

Kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen uses the forces of nature to create his magical Strandbeests (‘Beach animals’). Theo always strives to push back the boundaries of what is deemed possible and illustrates the similarities of his work and that of Boskalis engineers.

I hope you enjoy reading this second edition and please let us know any suggestions you may have for future editions. Let’s create new horizons together!
