Royal HaskoningDHV has a wide range of expertise in maritime structures which often form key elements of our work in other areas of the maritime sector. This expertise covers structures such as breakwaters, quay walls and moveable structures but also inspection and repair services and diving services.

Optimisation of the breakwater design aims to reduce the construction costs of breakwaters. A thorough understanding of the design factors and the design process forms the basis of such optimisation process. Through knowledge and experience, Royal HaskoningDHV has built this understanding by designing breakwaters in many places in the world under varying conditions.

Quay walls play a crucial role in the operational capacity of ports, shipyards and other waterside facilities. Due to the growing number and size of vessels, there is increasing pressure to provide more efficient new infrastructure, or upgrade the existing facilities through quay wall deepening and rehabilitation. Whether there is a need for new build, upgrading, repair or refurbishment our quay wall specialists use their expertise and worldwide experience to find the right solutions. We tailor our approach to quay wall design to meet our client's operational objectives, both immediate and future.
