First phase of Hansweert dyke reinforcement awarded to Van Oord-KWS consortium

The Scheldestromen Water Board has awarded a consortium formed by Van Oord and KWS consortium a contract for the Hansweert dyke reinforcement project in Zeeland, the Netherlands.

The dyke must be reinforced over a length of more than five kilometres to meet the current safety standard.

The project comprises two phases. Phase one involves the construction team phase, with the client and the contractor jointly determining the design and the method of execution and formulating the price and the contract.

The intention is to contract the contractor of the construction team phase also for phase two, the implementation phase.

The project execution will start in 2022 while completion is expected in 2024.
