  • Coastal defence dam Afsluitdijk (NL; 2019-2024)

90 years ago, an inspiring civil engineering project was completed, the 32km long Coastal defence dam ‘Afsluitdijk’, which reduced flooding risk for a large part of the Netherlands. It also enabled land reclamation within the now peaceful inland lake and delivered a large fresh water storage for the population and many farmers. This iconic and world renowned defence dam is currently undergoing a thorough upgrade, including a 2m increase in height to be able to withstand the predicted sea level rise, heavier storms and also to enable sluicing (and pumping) large quantities of fresh water to the sea in case of heavy rain fall. Also part of the project objectives are environmental measures to enhance fish migration between the lake and the sea. Delta Marine Consultants (DMC) has been involved in the Tender Design, Basic Design and Detailed Design for the defence dam strengthening, road works and all new civil structures. Our in-house XblocPlus armour units (on the project used under the name Levvelbloc) are being placed as reinforcement of the 32 km long Afsluitdijk.

  • Quay walls for British Antarctic Survey (Rothera wharf in Antarctica and KEP wharf in South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands; 2018-2020)

The Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme commissioned by the Natural Environment Research Council (UKRI-NERC) will enable a world-leading capability to ensure that Britain remains at the forefront of climate, biodiversity and oceanographic research in the Polar regions. Through the programme, British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is enhancing station facilities. The upgrade of the wharf at King Edward Point in the Sub-Antarctic region and the upgrade of the Rothera wharf in Antarctica, allow the new and highly advanced polar research vessel RRS Sir David Attenborough to berth. Both wharves have been designed by Delta Marine Consultants within the framework of the multi-year partnership between BAS and BAM. DMC has also been fully involved in the constructability methods and has provided support during the execution stage.

  • Floating infrastructure developments (various locations worldwide)

With the increasing effects of climate change, floating structures are a  sustainable way of adaptation. From submerged tunnels, through gravity based foundations for offshore wind to floating structures such as swimming pools and foundations for buildings, DMC has extensive experience in the field of floating structures and infrastructure. This expertise includes the realization of stability and dynamic assessments, the structural design of the floating bodies and the constructability and site engineering support to the execution.

  • Innovation partnership for the renovation of the 100-year old quay walls in Amsterdam (starting 2021)

The municipality of Amsterdam has more than 600 kilometres of quay walls, 205 kilometres of which are foundations. Especially in the busy, historic city centre there are many vulnerable quays, which are often more than a hundred years old. The quay walls are at the end of their lifespan and are being loaded more heavily than they were originally designed for. Therefore, they need to be renewed. Because many kilometres are involved, this requires smart, sustainable, and efficient solutions. That is why the Municipality of Amsterdam together with several market parties will develop new solutions to replace the vulnerable quay walls in the city in a smart way (source: Municipality of Amsterdam). Three partnerships have won the contest to further develop and test their proposed innovative design and construction solutions. Delta Marine Consultants, as designer for BAM Infra NL, participates in the partnership named Combinatie Koningsgracht.
