IJmuiden Sea Lock Project – February Update

Construction works continued this month on the new sea lock at IJmuiden, the Netherlands, with the new control building slowly beginning to take shape, reports the Port of Amsterdam.

The control building (no. 1 in the picture) is starting to take shape by now. The lock gate chambers (no. 2 in the picture) are also gaining in height. Also continuing this month are the concreting and anchoring operations of the lock chamber walls (no. 3 in the picture), the port announced.

According to the port, the foundations of the new control building have been sunk into the ground and the new control building – situated next to the concrete mixing plant – will gradually begin to take shape in the coming months (no. 1 in the picture). A scale-model of the new control building can be seen in the Lock and Port Information Point (Sluis Haven Informatie Punt), known by the Dutch acronym SHIP, in IJmuiden.

In the coming months, the lock gate chambers (no. 2 in the picture) will also be gaining in height. The rebar for the walls will be installed first and then concrete will be poured. Concreting will take place layer after layer. This way, the walls will be composed of different layers of concrete, added the port.

The concreting and anchoring operations of the lock chamber walls on both the north and the south side of the new lock (no. 3 in the picture) are continuing. The anchors are installed into the anchor beam that is being built on top of the rebar of the lock chamber walls. The anchors will fasten the diaphragm walls of the lock chamber walls in the subsoil. Each anchor will be approximately 40 meters long, concluded the Port of Amsterdam.
