At the North Sea side, Eemshaven is the main energy port of The Netherlands and very important within Northwest Europe. It provides approximately 8,000 MW energy production, international energy supply and intensive offshore wind industry. This Energy Park plays an essential role in the European living environment, both socially and economically.
The expansion of Eemshaven was a very ambitious project and we were very pleased to be able to deliver our contribution. We worked 24/7 with our dedicated team and heavy equipment to realise all the work within a short period of time. After only two days, our largest suction dredger was fully operational.
An electrical powered submersible pump (4,500 m3 mixture per hour) was put into operation so that we were able to pump the sand relatively cleanly and quietly. We could work very sustainably and deliver high volumes with the best possible perfomance. A tolerance of 30 cms was achieved with a specially designed drag head. The material flow was sprayed into the assigned areas behind the quay walls for industrial expansion.
