Team Van Oord Completes Great Ouse Scheme

Working on behalf of the Environment Agency, Team Van Oord (TVO) recently completed a scheme on the banks of the Great Ouse in Norfolk.

TVO successfully removed asbestos piles and replaced them with new steel piles and capping beam along a stretch of the Great Ouse embankment.

Perry Dale, Team Van Oord’s Contracts Manager for the project, said: “During the works, our site management and operations team worked closely with the landowner and landlord, and all parties were in constant communication throughout the scheme. We spent considerable time liaising with the landlord to mitigate the impact of our works.”

The works, carried out with floating plant, were phased to minimize impact on local businesses and river users. The team prioritized sections where the asbestos piles were most seriously damaged.
