Boskalis HIRDES

As an innovative hydraulic construction company, we are active nationally and internationally in the areas of hydraulic construction, coastal protection, land reclamation and ordnance clearance, both onshore and offshore. With our experts, vessels and services, we offer a unique combination, which guarantees the maximum safety and sustainability standards.

Specialists for hydraulic construction, coastal protection & ordnance clearance

Since 1912 we have been taking on the challenges and tasks of hydraulic construction, onshore and offshore with high levels of discipline, engineering performance, integrity and loyalty – and since 1978 also with a separate business division for ordnance clearance. Consequently, we are able to offer our customers everything from a single source and act quickly if dangerous legacy contamination is discovered. We are constantly developing our expertise and services further corresponding to the current requirements, whereby the subjects of safety, sustainability and environmental protection always serve as the higher principles.
