Van Oord reinforcing Dutch coast

Van Oord has been awarded two project contracts to reinforce coastal defences in The Netherlands. The contracts involve a total sum of approximately Euros 48 million, with Van Oord’s activities accounting for around Euros 24 million.

The first project involves sand replenishment along the coast in the Voorne region, where trailing suction hopper dredgers will deposit more than 2.2 million m3 of sand. The client is the Hollandse Delta Water Board. The project is scheduled to be completed in spring 2010.
