Growing with Opportunities
The Company was established in 1993 as Dharti Dredging and Construction Limited and executed its first project at Paradip fishing harbour. The Company changed its name to Dharti Dredging and Infrastructure Limited (DDIL) in 2007 and was involved in a number of marine projects in India, Indonesia, Myanmar and Middle East regions.
Traditionally, dredging has been Dharti’s core activity. However, everything we do today remains a continuation of our core business – opening new opportunities for cross-selling.
Today, we’re working on multiple challenging projects simultaneously, each of them with their own degree of complexity. In the past, we were deployed for standard deepening or maintenance dredging but today we are extending ports, reclaiming land, subsea trenching for offshore pipelines, underwater rock drilling & controlled blasting and constructions of artificial reefs.
In the economic context, these projects provides stiff challenges but we are still well on course even in challenging context and working on growth, quality, and consistency in a committed and sustainable manner.
