Den Oever Dike Reinforcement Contract for Van Oord

Hollands Noorderkwartier Regional Water Board (HHNK) has awarded the dike reinforcement project Den Oever in the north of the Netherlands to Van Oord.

The work is set to begin in 2017 and will continue until 2019, Van Ord said in the announcement.

The project, part of the Dutch Flood Protection Program, will encompass the design and the reinforcement of 900 meters of dike.

After completion the dike meets the legal standard of 1:4,000. This means that the dike has to withstand a superstorm that occurs on average once in 4,000 years.

The project was awarded to Van Oord because of the attention that will be given to the surrounding community during the execution of the project.

Kees Stam, Hollands Noorderkwartier Regional Water Board, said: “I am delighted that after years of thorough preparation Van Oord is going to realize the project for us.”

Van Oord plans to deploy crane vessels, barges and dry earth moving equipment for this project.
