World's largest sea lock

Noordersluis in IJmuiden replaced by a new gigantic concrete lock Paul Wernsen, Leon Lous - 26 juni 2017

In IJmuiden, located at the mouth of the 27 km long Noordzeekanaal that links Amsterdam and its port with the sea, the Ministry of infrastructure and the Environment is building the world's largest sea lock. The extremely tight construction site and the tight schedule add to the complexity of the project. The gates in the new lock will reach almost 8 m above the current water level, thus providing defence against rising sea levels. The enormous lock will be made out of 290 000 m3 of concrete.
