The core business of the holding is Dredging. Environmental and Marine Engineering (DEME).

Our owners are Ackermans & van Haaren, which was founded as early as 1852, CFE, the French financial group, and GIMV, the Belgium state organization, hi other words 3% of our company shares are in hands of Belgium government.

Some facts from our history - Dredging International was established in 1974 by the concentration of the dredging division of Ackermans & van Haaren and Societe Generate de Dragage. As a result: a company that has over 100 years of experience and is to be founded at top level in the international dredging business was created. The company is specialised in the construction and development of harbours, artificial islands, estuarial dams, canals and inland waterways, dike construction and reinforcement, beach replenishment and coastal protection, supply of dredged aggregates and salvage activities.

In 1991 the holding company Dredging. Environmental & Marine Engineering (DEME) was established to pool resources together.

The company's capabilities have further expanded into such areas as:

• soil investigation in marine conditions
• landfall construction
• quay wall renovation
• soft soil improvement
• environmental techniques such as in- and ex-situ cleaning of contaminated silt and soils, waste management- construction of slope and bottom protection by means of geotextiles, HDPE layers, stone revetments and stone asphalt revetment works, etc.

The turnover of the last 4 years was following:
• 2000-687 mln. Euro,
