Exploitation of Marine Concessions

DEME Building Materials (DBM) is the DEME subsidiary responsible for dredging, processing and supplying marine aggregates on the European market. The company has the benefit of a substantial portfolio of long-term concessions, spanning an area from northern Germany right over the UK Continental Shelf to the French Continental Shelf. DBM has built up a strong position in many countries due to long-term international partnerships in various regions.

The geographical distribution of DBM’s aggregates reserves up to 200 million tonnes allows DBM to offer a long-term viable alternative for the substitution of river dredged material or quarried aggregates for ready-mix concrete and concrete products in Europe. Thanks to DBM’s yearlong experience with the operation of marine concessions, these reserves are exploited in an efficient way with due care for the environment.

This includes the performance of the necessary environmental impact assessments, adherence to strict regulations, extensive reporting on activities and regular environmental monitoring.
