Anton Constructiewerken carried out emergency work on the mooring posts for the largest sea lock in the world. The mooring posts serve to protect the quay and as a mooring place for boats until the sea lock is open.
Emergency work on largest sea lock in the world
In total, four mooring posts were assembled and welded in just three weeks. The four mooring posts are assembled with hardox drill teeth. After the bored pile has been screwed in, the pile must be founded by means of non-shrink mortar (grout). Grout pipes were used to bring this grout down under high pressure. These grout pipes are welded under standard NEN EN 1090-2 ex3 ROK 1.4. The mooring posts have been drilled on the sea side of the sea lock.
