Technology and measures for protecting the environment

When carrying out our construction measures, we necessarily interfere in ecosystems. This cannot be avoided. We therefore invest independently in the further development of processes and technologies for sustainable and ecological hydraulic construction.

To protect the environment, we use sophisticated processes specially aligned for this and always ensure that, through careful construction measures, ecosystems are not damaged or - if possible – even to improve the habitat conditions for fora and fauna.

In addition, we have far-reaching experience with the correct transportation, disposal and treatment of contaminated dredged material. Our soils have had to cope with and absorb lots of contamination since the start of industrialisation, which are revealed again during today’s construction measures. For us, correct removal of the contaminated material from our environment is part of this as much as the proactive application of environmentally friendly processes and measures for preventing or reducing emissions and waste.
