Reinforcement of Kinderdijk Dike Section

Dike Reinforcement at Kinderdijk

A 10-kilometre-long section of the dike between Kinderdijk and Schoonhovenseveer failed to meet the required safety standards. On behalf of Rivierenland Water Authority, the dike has again been restored to the required strength. Iv-Infra made a significant contribution to the integral design process by managing the design work and handling the systems engineering. Iv-Infra has also designed the riverwards dike reinforcements. The weakened old dike and the new dike had to be protected against flooding which required constant alertness, turning both the design and planning of the work (outside the dikes) into a logistical puzzle.
