Heinrich Hirdes has belonged to Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. since 1991. Boskalis is a leading global maritime services company operating in the dredging, offshore energy and inland infra sectors.

Heinrich Hirdes has been operating since 1912 both domestically and internationally in the hydraulic engineering, coastal defence and land reclamation sectors. Our extensive experience, gained from a wide range of successfully completed projects, has resulted in even the special requirements involved in sensitive areas such as nature reserves and national parks being part of our standard repertoire.

As an innovative company, we regard it as our duty to also engage in activities outside our operating core business. To this end, we are involved in numerous professional committees concerning the creation of future solutions in the fields of hydraulic engineering and explosive ordnance clearance, and work together with colleges and universities in the promotion of young talent. We are able to call upon our experience gained from international projects and we actively involve ourselves in the development of working processes and their technical solutions.

Furthermore, we also support social projects such as the “Sternenbrücke” children’s hospice, and donated €8,000 to the centre in 2017.

The management f.l. Siegmund Schlie, Ralf Merker, Peer Gent (Sternenbrücke), Jan Paulsen, Andreas Jeron und Klaus Waßmuth
