At Royal HaskoningDHV, we know that a clear understanding of the value and liabilities attached to physical assets is essential for achieving successful deals.

Our maritime team has an unrivalled understanding of physical assets in the maritime environment. We have built up our experience over more than 100 years of active involvement in the planning, design and construction supervision of maritime infrastructure across the globe.

Within our 700-strong maritime team, we maintain a niche group of technical staff who have a specific focus on due diligence activity. Our specialists combine an in-depth technical knowledge with the ability to convert this knowledge into clear practical advice for our clients. We provide insights in technical issues related to new build structures as well as existing structures. Our advice can consist of understanding the design and construction risks, remaining useful operation life of a structure, the annual maintenance costs of an asset, or the reconstruction costs once an asset reaches the end of its useful life.

We work to provide our clients with this information in clear factual terms, drawing out the key facts and opinions that our clients need to support their business models and inform commercial decisions.

Our experts know that due diligence activities always run to tight timescales and key decisions must be made quickly based on limited information. Our extensive maritime experience and vast database of historic data allows us to enhance the value of the limited information available on any specific transaction. This supports crucial decision taking by our clients.

Our technical and operational expertise covers the full range of infrastructure within the maritime sector including:

  • Ports, breakwaters and access channels
  • Harbours
  • Shipyards
  • Oil & gas terminals
  • Marine pipelines
  • Offshore wind farms
  • Marinas
