Socio-economic impact

Our activities promote further development of prosperity and deliver innovative, safe and sustainable solutions, even in remote and vulnerable areas, with regard to:

  • Protection against flooding, for example due to climate change, through the execution of projects such as the Hondsbossche and Pettemer Sea Defense.

  • Meeting the growing demand for (renewable) energy through our activities related to wind farms. Showcase projects include DolWin2.

  • Land reclamation for residential, commercial and recreational purposes through pro jects like Pluit City in Indonesia, FP1 in Singapore and Punta Pacifica 2 in Panama.

  • Facilitating growth in world trade through the construction and maintenance of ports and waterways, for example the expansion of the Suez Canal in Egypt.

  • Assistance to vessels in distress and removal of fuel, thus avoiding major potential environmental damage, like the removal of 427 tons of heavy oil and 125 tons of diesel oil from the sunken Dutch freighter Flinterstar.
