Jan De Nul Strengthens Prins Hendrik Dike

The Prins Hendrik dike in Texel, which is over three kilometers long, is strengthened with sand on the sea side, adding some 200 hectares to the island.

As from 2018, Jan De Nul N.V. will build a dynamic, unique nature reserve with dunes, salt marsh and beach in front of the current dike.

The project kills two birds with one stone: the dam is made future-proof and the natural values in the Wadden Sea improve. The reinforcement of the Prins Hendrik dike was awarded by Hollands Noorderkwartier district water control board and forms part of a sizable dike reinforcement operation in the Netherlands.

In all, more than 1,100 kilometers of dikes and almost 500 locks and pumping stations will be handled until 2028.

The trailing suction hopper dredger Bartolomeu Dias will put in the sand in the second half of 2018. After that Jan De Nul will start designing the landscape in the environment.

The completion of the works is scheduled for mid-2019.
