Dredging Company, Zwijndrecht, Belgium

Together with Baggerwerken Decloedt, Dredging International is one of the primary operating companies of DEME Group, responsible for more than two thirds of total turnover. Dredging International (DI) has a leading position on the global dredging market and has experienced rapid and sustained growth over the last decade. The core activity of DI is dredging and land reclamation.
Dredging International has its roots in the world port of Antwerp on the river Scheldt. They have contributed for more than one hundred years to deepening and maintenance programs of the river fairway, and to major reclamation projects that have created new land for a world class industry. In one century, the depth of the river fairway has more than doubled and bulk carriers of up to 274.726 dwt and a length of 335 metres are now able to sail seventy kilometers inland. After the First World War barely 425.000 m3 per year was dredged in the river Scheldt. By contrast, since the end of the Second World War, almost half a billion m3 of spoil has been removed from the Scheldt. At the same time, the port has expanded to 14.000 ha on the left and the right river banks.
