Vision, ambition, mission
IHC Merwede Group develops and builds for the dredging and offshore sectors, serving projects that safeguard the sustainable survival of the planet. That future is determined by a number of factors: security, economic stability, resources of raw materials and logistical possibilities. That is the backdrop for IHC Merwede operations. We are an indispensable link in the supply chain for energy and logistics involving projects that make it possible to protect the world's environment.

IHC Merwede Group is active in two main markets:
the dredging & mining market, and the offshore & marine market. We develop and build dredging and offshore working vessels, combining and integrating systems and equipment as and when that is needed. IHC Merwede also operates in the cruiseship- and ferry market, and in the foundation market. IHC Merwede is ambitious: we aim to use our specific knowledge and expertise to become the world leader in our fields of activity.

Product development and innovation

Innovation at IHC Merwede takes place at three levels: the product, system and process levels. We devote between three and four percent of turnover to innovation. Where necessary, we enter into partnerships. Subject matter expertise is developed and safeguarded in many places in the company every day. MTI has a special position here, acting as the IHC Merwede knowledge centre, in particular for the dredging and mining sector. IHC Merwede innovations include projects with important social and environmental objectives: decreasing fuel consumption and noise pollution, reducing NOx and SOx emissions, forms of sustainable dredging, environmentally friendly drilling and the creation of a safe working environment for the crews. Innovation and sustainability often go hand in hand. The development and implementation of innovative technologies is a way of making our own contribution to socially responsible business.
