Van Oord and Boskalis reinforce the weak link in Noord Holland
The contract with a value of approximately EUR 140 million comprises the construction and maintenance of the new sandy coastline for 20 years. The project is part of the second national High Water Protection Programme. The contract will be signed on 11 December 2013.
The project will commence early 2014 and will encompass sand replenishment for the construction of a beach and dunes. The new coastal area offers room for nature and recreation. After completing the project on 31 December 2015, the Van Oord - Boskalis joint venture will be responsible for maintaining the coastline for another 20 years. The replenishment activities will be carried out with four trailing suction hopper dredgers depositing 40 million cubic metres of sand sourced from sea.
More information about the project will be available after signing the contract at 11 December.
