World Cement,


Dyckerhoff Basal, part of the Buzzi Unicem Group, has installed two mobile, concrete production plants on an artificial island at the entrance to the port of Amsterdam.

The plants will provide around 300 000 m3 of concrete for the construction of a new lock, which is designed to allow larger ships to access the city’s port. The new lock will be 500 m long, 70 m wide and 18 m deep. Once complete, it will be the largest in the world. Construction began in 2016 and will be completed in late 2019.

Daily production is approximately 1600 m3, with peaks of 200 m3/hr. The cement comes from plants in Neuss and Neuwied.
