The lock of Ijmuiden

March 22, 2017

Dyckerhoff Basal has installed two mobile, concrete production plants on an artificial island at the entrance to the port of Amsterdam.
The plants will provide a total of approximately 300,000 m3 of concrete for the construction of a new lock that will allow larger ships to access the city's port.
Daily production is around 1,600 m3, with peaks of 200 m3/hour, while the cement comes from plants in Neuss and Neuwied.
The new lock will be 500 m long, 70 m wide and 18 m deep, and upon completion will be the largest in the world.
Begun in 2016, construction will complete in late 2019.
