International Marine and Dredging Consultants (IMDC) is an engineering and consultancy company specialised in a vast range of water related projects. Our highly qualified staff offers advice based on recent research results of leading universities and research institutes and hands-on experience acquired throughout the years.


Boudewijn Decrop of IMDC is the winner of the first prize of the International PIANC De Paepe-Willems Award 2017, with a technical article based on his PhD research entitled “TOWARDS A BETTER PREDICTION OF DREDGING PLUMES: NUMERICAL AND PHYSICAL MODELLING OF THE NEAR-FIELD DISPERSION”.

IMDC was recently appointed by the World Bank and the Nordic Development Fund for the study “Cost of Coastal Environmental Degradation, Multi Hazard Risk Assessment and Cost Benefit Analysis” within the West Africa Coastal Area Adaptation technical assistance project. This study will provide a framework in order to study and quantify the coastal erosion and flood risk, identify and rank hotspots along the coast in terms of hazards and vulnerability, quantify the cost of coastal environmental degradation, and compare possible Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation measures in a Cost Benefit Analysis. IMDC will apply this new framework to select hotspots and develop strategic investment plans for four pilot locations in Ghana, Togo, Benin and Ivory coast.
