How do we fit in?

Developments within the Baltic and North Seas are subject to regulatory constraints regarding impacts on the marine historic environment and any potential archaeological remains.

We prove through our investigations and expert reports that our clients are fulfilling their obligation to protect the cultural heritage under water. This offers our customers planning security for their projects. Our investigations show whether and to what extent archaeological finds are to be expected in the planning area, and we draw up concrete, data-supported proposals on how the cultural assets under water can be optimally protected with the least possible effort.
