Opening of Royal van Lent Shipyard
A total of 59 parties were involved in this construction project. We were initially commissioned to construct the complete dry dock with fitting-out quay. Later, the foundations and floor slabs for the roof, the workshops and the offices were added to the assignment. Finally, we received an order for the delivery and assembly of the prefabricated concrete for the superstructure, produced in our own concrete factory, as well as the complete finishing.
The underwater concrete floor of the dry dock is reinforced with 4D steel fibre and sunken reinforcement cages. This technical feat, devised by our in-house design team, has resulted in a highly optimised floor design. It’s the first time such a concrete floor has been implemented this way in Europe. We wish Royal van Lent every success in using the new yard.
