Marine, Coastal and Geotechnical

COWI’s experience with marine engineering dates back to 1935. Since then, we have pushed the boundaries of marine design through our involvement in more than 3000 marine projects worldwide.

These projects range from large and technically challenging LNG terminals, container ports and waterfront developments to cooling water systems, off shore wind farms, floor protection, locks and dams.

Today, we are a world leader in this field, a position we have achieved by diligently pushing the development of new technologies to stretch the limit of what is possible. We are driven by innovation and our ambition to work closely with our clients to deliver world-class projects.

Our marine, coastal and geotechnical engineering experience spans the entire lifecycle of a structure: from planning to decommissioning or rehabilitation; with our services ranging from consultancy for a specific issue; to comprehensive planning; and total engineering design and implementation. We can handle the entire project, or we can step in at any moment to provide your project with the expertise it deserves.

Understanding client’s needs

With a full set of world-class competencies within marine and coastal engineering combined with local presence and experience, we are ready to take on any project, anywhere in the world – no matter how large or small.

Our 12 UK based employees form part of the 300 strong team of marine and geotechnical engineers working from 15 offices worldwide. COWI’s marine, coastal and geotechnical services draw on the skills of local and global experienced professionals whose involvement in complex and demanding projects has led to the development of an extensive pool of specialist knowledge.

Multidisciplinary solutions

As part of COWI’s focus on multidisciplinary solutions, our integrated design approach draws on the company’s expertise in areas such as traffic planning, roads, rails, bridges, climate change, environment and economy.
