On 5 December 2012, the car carrier Baltic Ace sank with more than 1,400 cars on board after a collision with a container ship near the entrance of the main shipping lane leading to Rotterdam port.

Boskalis and a partner successfully completed the salvage of the car carrier Baltic Ace in the North Sea. The project started in April 2014 by removing 460,000 liters of fuel oil from the wreck.

The second phase of the project consisted of the removal and controlled dismantling of the entire wreck and its cargo.
