This enables us to bring tailor-made solutions, innovation and new technologies to our customers’ projects, ensuring that they are performed safely, efficiently and cost-effectively.
While our roots are in Belgium, DEME has built a strong presence across the globe. We have a versatile and modern fleet of more than 100 vessels, supported by a broad range of auxiliary equipment.
Solutions for global challenge
Our vision is to work towards a sustainable future by offering solutions for global, worldwide challenges: rising sea levels, a growing population, reduction of emissions, polluted rivers and soils and the scarcity of natural resources. Although DEME’s foundations were built on dredging, the portfolio has diversified substantially over the decades, growing from largely focusing on dredging and land reclamation, to solutions for the offshore energy sector (oil & gas and renewables), infra marine market and for environmental remediation. Our multidisciplinary approach means that we have become a true, global solutions provider.
Exploring new horizons
We also strongly believe in turning challenges into opportunities. That’s why we are continuously looking for ways to deploy our knowledge and expertise in other activities, exploring new horizons and expanding our solutions portfolio. As a leader in environmental remediation we are looking into solutions to tackle marine litter in our rivers and oceans. We are building on our experience in coastal protection to develop nature-based solutions to tackle the rising sea level. Our continued investments in new technologies and activities underline just how important innovation is to our company.
