DEME is involved in marine infrastructure and civil works that complement and reinforce the company’s dredging activities. These include the design and construction of hydraulic works such as jetties, port terminals, locks and weirs; infrastructural works such as bored, immersed and cut and cover tunnels, foundation and marine works for bridges or other constructions in a marine or fluvial environment, as well as civil works for harbour construction, dams and sea defences, canal construction, revetment, quay wall construction and shore protection. We also have a specialised engineering and design department, which can assist our customers with complex infrastructure projects.
As a result of winning three large infrastructure projects in the Netherlands, we have become a leading civil contractor with a strong position in the Benelux construction market. Internationally, DEME is a partner in the Femern Link Contractors consortium (FLC) which was awarded three out of four contracts for the design and build of the Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link project - a 19 km long immersed road and rail tunnel between Rødby, Lolland, Denmark and Puttgarden, Fehmarn, Germany - in 2016.
Our infra activity line can be summarised as follows:
- Locks and Weirs
- Immersed Tunnels
- Bored Tunnels
- Cut and cover tunnels
- Quay Walls and Ports
- Marine and Inland Waterway Jetties
