Deepening of the Zaan

Challenge

The Zaan is an important waterway for the economy and tourism in the Zaanstreek (Zaan area).

To improve the navigability of the Zaan and facilitate the growth in transport as much as possible, the channel needed to be deepened and widened to a full-fledged CEMT class Va waterway. 

Our solution

Besides the deepening and widening of the Zaan, several additional activities were carried out as well, such as approaching and detecting suspect objects (possible explosives), inspecting all quay constructions, monitoring banks and dams during the dredging works, and moving cables and pipes.
