Grand in lock design
When looking back to 29th April 1930. IJmuiden, a city in the Netherlands, marked a big event: the new Noordersluis sea lock officially opened by Queen Wilhelmina. Steamship Johan van Oldenbarnevelt has the honour of being the first ship to pass through the lock. The opening is largely addressed, and so it should be! Because with a length of 400 metres, a width of 50 metres and a depth of 15 metres, the Noordersluis is currently the largest sea lock in the world. Now, 87 years later, IJmuiden is working hard on the construction of an even bigger sea lock. Iv-Infra is commissioned by the consortium OpenIJ to design the new gates and its moving mechanism.   View full article.

Largest Dutch wind farm under construction
The first wind farm, currently under construction, is Borssele. The farm consists of two parts, Borssele sites I and II, and Borssele sites III and IV. Together, the two wind farms have the capacity to generate 1,400 megawatts of green energy, enough to supply electricity to two million households. TenneT has taken on HSM Offshore and Iv-Oil & Gas for the Borssele Alpha offshore transformer station: a model of Dutch ingenuity. View full article.

Pioneering spirit in full swing
The first successful high seas test has already been carried out with the lifting system for offshore platforms aboard the Pioneering Spirit. In August 2016, the ship launched the first tests at sea. And successfully, which led the Pioneering Spirit to Norway where the 13,500-tonne Yme mobile offshore production platform was dismantled. A few months later, Shell's Brent-Delta platform was delivered back to land. Never before was such a large platform removed by one ship. The 24,000-tonne top side of the platform was lifted at the end of April 2017; it took only ten seconds to completely lift the platform. A world record in the field of lifts!  View full article.
