DEME Infra Marine Contractors (DIMCO) established - DEME’s specialist in-house marine infrastructure company
Late 2015, DEME established specialist marine infrastructure holding company named DEME InfraSea Solutions (DISS) NV.
DISS has today two subsidiaries, namely DEME Infra Marine Contractors DIMCO BV and DIMCO NV, which are active in the Benelux and the international market respectively. Having this design & build marine infrastructure capability in-house follows demand from Clients for integrated solutions.
More and more Customers don’t want to involve several contractors and/or consultants separately anymore, potentially facing problems with interface management but instead, they prefer to deal with just a single entity, as projects get increasingly complex.
Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) contracts are now more the norm, whereas previously infrastructure works were largely carried out by involving several specialised (sub)contractors and service providers.
DIMCO will be involved in any marine infrastructure/civil works project that complement and reinforce DEME’s activities.
These include design and construction of hydraulic and maritime works for jetties and port terminals, locks, weirs, bored/immersed/cut & cover tunnels, large and complex earth moving works, foundations and marine works for bridges and offshore constructions, civil works for harbour construction, dams and sea defences, canal construction, revetment work, quay wall construction and shore protection amongst others.
The company also has a very large engineering and design department, which can assist DEME Clients.
The new marine infrastructure companies today employ around 150 experienced staff in Belgium and the Netherlands.
