Rotterdam Maascenter Area

From 1 May 2013, to 1 August 2013, dredging work will be carried out in the precautionary area, in connection with the construction of Maasvlakte 2.

In an area directly to the north of the Maascenter, sand will be extracted during the period indicated.

The work will be carried out by one trailing suction hopper dredger. Working vessels will use the prescribed traffic signs and lighting and listen to the relevant sector channels, in accordance with the international regulations to prevent collisions at sea.

Users of the waterway are advised to make inquiries about the presence of the trailing suction hopper dredgers in good time.
