According to DEME, the first half was characterised by solid growth of the orderbook, revenue and EBITDA, despite having several large-scale projects in the Offshore Energy segment in start-up phase.

Turnover grew from 1.3 billion euro in the first half of 2022 to almost 1.5 billion euro in the first half of 2023. Revenue in the Dredging & Infra segment decreased slightly (-4%), while revenue in the Offshore Energy and Environmental segments saw significant increases of 40% and 58% respectively.

The orderbook grew to nearly 7.7 billion euro, driven by new projects in all contracting segments, with each one reaching a record level.

The Dredging & Infra orderbook increased 27% compared to a year ago. The segment executed work on a container terminal in Colombo (Sri Lanka), a port expansion in Italy, a capital dredging project in Mexico and began work on the next phase of a project in Nigeria.

In addition to maintenance contracts across Europe, work on terminals are ongoing in Gdansk (Poland) and Stade (Germany) as well as a capital dredging project in Egypt.

The segment also continued work on large infra flagship projects in Europe including the first phase of the Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link project (Denmark), Port-La Nouvelle in France, the Blankenburg project and the New Lock Terneuzen in the Netherlands, and the Oosterweel Link project in Belgium.
