Silver Award for Team Van Oord

Team Van Oord has been awarded a silver award in the ‘Innovation’ category for the Medmerry Managed Realignment Scheme, delivered on behalf of the Environment Agency.

The company is listed as a Green World Award winner alongside governments and organizations from countries including South Korea, Poland, Malaysia, UAE, Colombia, New Zealand, Germany, Bahrain, Singapore and Brazil.

The Green World Awards have been launched as the top tier of the Green Apple Awards, to enable companies and organizations to compete internationally for environmental recognition – not only for themselves, but also for their countries.

The Medmerry Managed Realignment Scheme involved the construction of four miles of new sea walls to reduce the flood risk to hundreds of properties on the West Sussex coast.

It has created a new wetland for wildlife to flourish and much of the site is now managed by the RSPB as a nature reserve. The scheme has been the subject of universal acclaim since it opened in November 2013. In total Medmerry has received no fewer than 17 industry awards in the past two years.

Having won a Green Apple Award in November 2014, in June 2015 Team Van Oord was acclaimed a Green World Ambassador as a result of the environmental success of the Medmerry scheme.
