Together with Dredging International, Baggerwerken Decloedt is one of the primary operating companies of the DEME Group. This specialist dredging company has been keeping the maritime trading lanes open, building some of the world’s biggest ports and protecting the coastal population for more than 100 years.
A vast bank of knowledge has been created and skills have been passed on from generation to generation. We know every single shoal and every single bar of the access channels to Antwerp, Ostend and Zeebugge. We are familiar with the currents of the shallow Flemish Banks. We have built the outer port and the inner harbour of Zeebrugge, replenished beaches and we constantly monitor the marine environment in the sensitive Scheldt estuary.
The numerous achievements of Baggerwerken Decloedt have largely contributed to the economic and social development of the Benelux coastal areas. New jobs have been created and local industry and tourism have flourished. We are very proud to have played a role in this development and look forward to doing so in the future.
