IHC Merwede Reports € 1.7 Billion Order Book
IHC Merwede increased its order book in 2013 across the main sectors of its business: offshore and dredging. The company received almost € 1.8 billion worth of new orders in the past year. At the end of 2013, the order book was valued at over € 1.7 billion, which is the equivalent of a backlog of approximately two years.
IHC Merwede develops and builds innovative vessels, advanced equipment and life-cycle support services for the dredging, mining and offshore industries. These markets have been performing well, despite the global economic situation and the knock-on effect for the maritime industry.
In 2013, IHC Merwede achieved a revenue of € 985 million (2012: € 895 million) and a net profit of € 56 million (2012: € 37 million). The company is looking ahead to the remainder of 2014 with increasing confidence.Edit Module
