The Afsluitdijk, Den Oever, The Netherlands
We are all facing a rising sea level and an increasing intensity of storms and floods. Especially our country, The Netherlands, with large parts of land below sea level. For this reason, the Dutch Government is currently executing large projects to keep The Netherlands safe. One of the projects is the reinforcement of the major coastal defence dam Afsluitdijk, which was originally opened in 1932. As DMC we are proud to have a key role in the design team, providing sustainable and innovative solutions to protect us against water.
