Another Important Contract for Grontmij

Water board Noorderzijlvest has contracted Dutch-based consultancy firm Grontmij to make a preliminary design and contract for a 12 km sea dike improvement between Eemshaven and Delfzijl, on the north coast of the Netherlands.

The flood defense project is part of a nationwide program to reinforce dikes to withstand heavier wave loads. The authorities decided to accelerate this particular project because of increasing frequency of earthquakes caused by local gas extraction activities.

Specific for this section, the sea dike also has to be made earthquake proof which is very unusual for flood defenses in the Netherlands.

The preliminary design and contract have to be ready by November 2015.
