Decades of experience in designing, engineering and constructing the world’s ports
In light of the global population increase, consequent demand for energy, and the exponential growth in world trade, ports worldwide are both expanding in numbers and extending. In recent years the maritime industry has seen the arrival of the ultra large container vessel. This new era has even led to giants carrying more than 23,500 TEU and this means ports have to adapt to serve these mammoth container ships.
DEME has many long-term relationships with port and harbour authorities in all corners of the globe. We aim to be a trusted partner and assist them with their planning and preparations, whether this involves an entirely new port or the extension of an existing facility.
DEME has decades of experience in port construction, from the initial feasibility study, soil investigation studies and environmental assessments through to the construction of dykes, breakwaters, quay walls and jetties.
Dredging guarantees sufficient depth and width in the access channel, turning basins and docks, and we always aim to maximise the possibilities for the reuse of sand and sediment. We work with our customers to ensure that the dredged material can be used to reclaim new land for example, which in turn minimises the environmental footprint of any port construction project.
As a leading port construction company, we pride ourselves on being able to offer integrated, sustainable solutions.
