Who Are We?

Anthony D Bates Dredging Consultants has a leading position on the global dredging market, providing expert advice on all aspects of the dredging industry. As we have experienced rapid and sustained growth over the last decade the capabilities of the partnership have expanded, and continue to expand, as the client base increases. Associations have been forged with other consultants to furnish the needs of any client whose requirements may go beyond the in-house expertise.

We are an established international dredging and coastal consultancy operating in over 30 countries with a strong track record of providing effective and creative solutions to some of the world's most challenging dredging projects. The knowledge, experience and the diverse skills we have acquired over the past 30 years is available for both domestic and international clients. Our specialist consultants work in partnership with clients to identify, define and deliver solutions to complex problems. We are focused on providing high quality, high value professional services to ensure we deliver optimum results and inspire confidence in everything we do to satisfy the needs of our valued clients.

Although many of the contract-related activities are very specialised, we are able to provide a very competitive service to ensure clients receive the best value for money solutions.
