Boskalis, KWS Win Wadden Sea Dike Deal

The Hollands Noorderkwartier district water board has awarded a contract to reinforce the Wadden Sea dike on the Dutch island of Texel to “Combinatie Tessel”, a consortium consisting of Boskalis and KWS, a VolkerWessels company.

The contract carries a value of EUR 70 million, of which Boskalis’ share is EUR 50 million.

Large parts of the Wadden Sea dike on Texel currently do not meet legal safety requirements.

The flood defenses need to be reinforced to meet these requirements in the future.

This coastal protection scheme involves the design and construction of the reinforcement of 14 kilometers of Wadden Sea dike and the construction of a number of new structures, including three pumping stations.

The operations will be carried out from 2016 to 2020.
