Construction of new quay in Vlissingen underway

Construction of new quay in Vlissingen underway

(Posted on 12/05/22)

The first spade has gone into the ground for the new 800-metre-long quay at Quarleshaven in East Vlissingen. With this €40 million investment, North Sea Port is improving access to the Sloe area.

The new quay at Bulk Terminal Zeeland in the Sloe area will replace the old quay that is being demolished. This will allow the company Bulk Terminal Zeeland to expand its operations, while Shipyard Reimerswaal's quay will also be extended in length.

"North Sea Port is investing a full €40 million in new port infrastructure with the new quay in the Sloe area”, says Daan Schalck, CEO of North Sea Port. Part of the quay will also be made accessible and prepared for potential customers who want to establish operations at Quarleskade. Daan Schalck: “This represents an efficient use of our port infrastructure.”

A consortium made up of Werkendam-based hydraulic engineers Hakkers and De Klerk will be responsible for the construction of the new quay, which will be ready by late 2024. The total length of the quay on the south side of Quarleshaven will be 1,200 metres.

The transhipment company Bulk Terminal Zeeland will see its quay extended from 250 metres to 440 metres in length. This will provide more space for the transhipment of dry bulk such as wood pellets, gypsum, raw materials for the steel industry, organic agricultural products and boulders for reinforcing offshore wind turbines.

The new quay will also connect to Shipyard Reimerswaal’s terminal, which will acquire an additional 40 metres of quayside once it is complete. As a result, the ship maintenance and repair company will have a total of 425 metres of quayside.

The construction of the new quay will also free up an additional 10 hectares of land for allocation to Bulk Terminal Zeeland. And there is still enough space between the terminal and Shipyard Reimerswaal for a new company to use.

Various types of seagoing vessels will be able to moor at the new quay, for example project cargo vessels, heavy-lift vessels, bulk carriers, fruit carriers and tankers with a draught of up to 12.5 metres, as well as inland vessels. There is potential to increase the water depth by two metres at a later date. The quay will be reinforced and made suitable for loads of up to 5 tons per square metre.

Hein van Laar, commercial director of Hakkers BV notes: “Following on from previous successful projects in Vlissingen, Hakkers and De Klerk are very proud to deliver this new project for North Sea Port. It demonstrates our strengths as a construction and hydraulic engineering partnership with all the necessary disciplines in-house."
