Ports, shipyards, and every other piece of maritime infrastructure evolve over time. To maximise your investments, maritime projects need to be adaptable – satisfying your current demands, while giving you a strong foundation to meet future needs.

At Royal HaskoningDHV, we stay at the forefront of innovation in maritime planning and development. Our teams of multi-disciplinary experts have helped clients across the five continents to create successful, future-proof maritime developments and sustainable port and shipyard infrastructure.

We have one of the largest and most experienced teams of maritime planning and design professionals globally. And we can help you with a comprehensive range of technical consultancy tasks – including maritime planning, technical due diligence, hinterland logistics advisory services, and navigational and mooring analysis.
