Royal HaskoningDHV Reports Increase in Orders

Royal HaskoningDHV is in good shape having expanded its order book by 27% and increased net profits with 87% in 2015.

According to the company, efforts have been focused on developing existing business and seeking growth within countries and markets where Royal HaskoningDHV already has a strong position.

In a move to encourage closer internal collaboration and faster decision making, the company structure has been streamlined from 8 to 4 Business Lines.

The new structure supports delivery of the increasingly integrated solutions which are required to solve the complex challenges faced in society.

A succession of major project wins during the year confirmed the company’s leading global position across key services.

Some of the major projects include:

  • the new canal Seine-Nord Europe which links Paris to Lille and creates a gateway from France to Belgium, eliminating a major bottleneck on the European waterway network;
  • a coastal protection program in Bangladesh bringing safety from flooding to hundreds of thousands of people.

Erik Oostwegel, Chairman of the Executive Board said: “We are halfway through executing our strategy ‘Vision 2018’ and feel confident about the second half.”

According to Oostwegel, the company is in good shape to face the challenges of the future, looking forward to the year ahead with confidence and optimism.
