Hakkers en Van Oord to start construction of deep-sea quay in HoogTij

The Hakkers en Van Oord development joint venture (JV) is set to begin the construction of a deep-sea quay next month near the HoogTij business park along the North Sea Canal.

The Hakkers en Van Oord development joint venture (JV) is set to begin the construction of a deep-sea quay next month near the HoogTij business park along the North Sea Canal.

The 130ha park will include two parts, which will be used by port-related companies and will accommodate land-based companies.

Port of Amsterdam, Municipality of Zaanstad, and Ontwikkelingsbedrijf Haventerrein Westzaan (the Haventerrein Westzaan Development Company) have initiated the HoogTij project.

The port authority is currently looking after the port-related section of the HoogTij park.

Construction of the 900m-deep quay is being commissioned by the Port of Amsterdam and is expected to be completed next year.

Following the completion, the quay is set to clear around 30ha of space for port-related activities, as well as offer free access to the North Sea Canal.

“Construction of the deep-sea quay is being commissioned by the Port of Amsterdam and is expected to be completed next year.”

The quay will also create an ‘encased’ dock to prevent vessels visiting the port from blocking access to the waterway.

Land and sand to be excavated from the quay-building process will be used to develop the second phase of the HoogTij project, the dry site.

Port of Amsterdam also plans to allocate the entire 30ha of new quay space to companies involved in the fields of offshore, including windfarms, agriculture and food, as well as logistics.

In October, container terminal CTVrede Steinweg and logistics services provider Gam BAKKER announced their intention to open their activities at the port-related site of the HoogTij park.

The proposed facility will be the third facility of CTVrede, which currently operates two terminals in the Netherlands’ Zaandam and Amsterdam.
