DETAILS OF THE CONCEPT, UTILITY AND MARKETING
THE NIGERIAN DREDGING
AND MARINE DIRECTORY
Nigeria’s dredging industry was formerly served exclusively
by the multinational companies such as Dredging International, Westminster
Dredging Boskalis, Ballast Ham Dredging, Jan de Nul and Van Oord.
Since the emergence of Nigerian indigenous dredging companies in the
late 1980s and early 1990s, there has been no proper compilation of
the reputable firms now engaged in dredging and allied marine works
in the country. Even the configuration of the multinational dredging
companies has changed considerably and needs to be properly documented
for public information.
The Nigerian Dredging and Marine Directory – Print Edition –
will fill this gap.
WHO IS TO BE LISTED?
It will be a full-colour directory having the contact details of all
reputable dredging companies and operators and other marine industry
service providers such as
• Dredge owners,
• Equipment dealers, manufacturers, vendors,
• Manufacturers’ and vendors’ representative offices
• Marine and maritime companies,
• Clearing and forwarding agents,
• Dredging- and marine-industry supporting banks,
• Insurance companies and,
• All stakeholders whose businesses revolve around the dredging
and allied sand-winning industries.
• Federal and state government regulatory agencies whose license
and registration permits are needed for dredging activities.
It is being conceived as a reference point for business and for history
because aside from circulation in the dredging and maritime industry,
copies of the directory will be donated to all Nigerian universities,
colleges of technology and other relevant institutions of higher learning
as a way to promote Nigeria’s dredging industry and nurture
awareness about the development of indigenous dredging technology

WHY SHOULD YOU ENLIST IN THIS COLOUR DIRECTORY?
1. Now is the time to consider how you want your company or organization
to be perceived in the industry, by the society at large and by the
academic community and history.
2. As well, now is the time to consider the marketing and advertising
potentials arising from a fine listing of your organization in this
maiden edition of the first-ever Nigerian Dredging and Marine Directory
to be printed.
3. Multinational or foreign dredging companies with long history of
activity in Nigeria need to update the public understanding of their
nomenclature, operating details, joint ventures concluded over the
years, mergers and acquisitions and other relevant details that reflect
their progressive march in the Nigerian theatre of the global industry.
4. Foreign equipment manufacturers and vendors/dealers are also encouraged
to reserve spaces for their companies and organizations as an extension
of marketing and advertising strategy in a developing economy with
dredging-dependent oil and gas sector and seaport industry.
5. As well, foreign equipment manufacturers have to reckon that the
competition for the supply of dredgers via locally-made machines is
restricted to small and medium scale categories; it does not affect
the market for bigger dredges or hopper dredgers and their ancillary
6. Therefore a listing in this directory is essential for foreign
manufacturers in other to target the market for harbor dredging and
development of new deep-sea ports which is now in vogue.
7. All Nigerian regulatory ministries, departments or agencies at
both federal and state levels need to take this listing seriously
because it is a compendium of essential information in the public
domain and will easily inform the operators about who-is-who and what-is-what
in terms of required operating licenses, rules and regulations.
8. Remember that failure to enlist your organization in the directory
may result in lost opportunities for the public and market place to
take notice of your corporate presence, services and potentials.
