This work is part of the beach nourishment operations at Camperduin and Petten-Zuid, in the Dutch province of North Holland.

By applying more than 1.2 million m3 of sand – 700,000m3 at Camperduin and 500,000m3 at Petten-Zuid, the coastline will continue to protect the province of North Holland well against the sea.
