Queen Beatrix closes seawall Maasvlakte 2July 2012
Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands will on 11 July give the official starting signal for the closure of the seawall of Maasvlakte 2. The operation will permanently change the outline of the Netherlands. The Rotterdam port will increase 20 percent in size and the Dutch coastline will move about 3.5 kilometres further out into the North Sea. The total length of the Maasvlakte 2 seawall is 11 kilometers.
The Maasvlakte 2 project is an extension of the port of Rotterdam, which will see the construction of a new port and supporting infrastructure on about 2,000 hectares of reclaimed land next to the existing Maasvlakte, an earlier extension of the Netherlands' biggest port.
Since 2006 Svašek Hydraulics is involved in the design process and construction aspects of Maasvlakte 2.
