Zuiderzee port in Kampen


De Vries & van de Wiel has built the Zuiderzee port in Kampen.

This extremely large project involved the excavation of a dock on the IJssel and the construction of a water-oriented industrial estate. The work was carried out together with Dredging International and Dura Vermeer.


Our solution


Besides the physical construction of the port and the surrounding area, the design too was part of the project. We took care of both wet and dry earth moving. The port was excavated with a cutter suction dredger.

The spoil from the dry earth moving was used for land reclamation in the adjacent areas. Bank and embankment constructions were made as well.
